Police Traffic Services

Education and enforcement are two very important components of collision reduction. Either component taken alone is inadequate. The Police Traffic Safety program focuses on a comprehensive approach to enforce and encourage compliance with seat belt use, impaired driving, speed limit, red light running, and other traffic laws. The grants are highly effective in reducing traffic collisions by dedicating resources to selective enforcement and education programs. These comprehensive programs have a long-lasting impact in reducing fatal and injury collisions. Under these programs, communities use available public and private assets to identify and attack significant traffic safety problems and other vehicle related crimes.
