Why do we disclose the location of our focused traffic enforcements?
Our Traffic Division monitors activity throughout Farmington and focuses their efforts on high problem areas where speeding and crashes are common occurrences. We’ve been sharing our focused enforcements on Facebook and are frequently asked why we disclose the locations. Our goal isn’t to get out there and write as many tickets as possible, but rather to prevent traffic violations and reduce the number of crashes by being highly visible to the public. This helps to serve as a deterrent, reminding people to slow down and abide by traffic laws. In addition, it increases transparency and public participation. We want you to know about the problems we face and how we are working to solve those problems. We also need your help to make Farmington the best place to live, work, and play.
Starting today through the end of August, our Traffic Division will be focusing their efforts on East and West Main near both Walmarts. These are areas where crashes commonly occur. Please help us keep our roadways safe by observing the rules of the road and Reporting Aggressive and Drunk Driving by calling 911. #RADD #slowdown#waittotext #traffictuesday
