Working together to reduce traffic crashes in the new year

A message from our Traffic Division

Traffic Tuesday 1

We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and share what we’ll be working on in 2018. The overall goal of our division is to make Farmington’s roadways safer for everyone, and this takes a partnership between FPD and the public. Our community has done an incredible job in this partnership by reporting suspected drunk and aggressive drivers and informing us of problem areas. KUDOS COMMUNITY! Keep up the good work.

Speeding:

The Slow Down Farmington Campaign launched late last year and took off across the community. It’s great to see the large number of signs displayed in yards and at businesses reminding others to take their time, not a life. Anyone who’d like a sign may pick one up at the police department or city hall. Our division will continue conducting focused traffic enforcements as we identify high-crash and other problem areas through data and citizen reports.

DWIs:

FPD will continue working diligently to reduce drunk driving in our community through saturation patrols, checkpoints and responding to citizen call-ins. Please remember, an individual driving drunk IS an emergency; report it by calling 911.

Something Fun:

Watch for Traffic Trivia where citizens can win prizes here on Facebook. We’ll be launching it soon in an upcoming Traffic Tuesday post.
