Due to the continued high crash-rate near the Ferry Street Bridge, the Traffic Enforcement Unit will focus on violations on Coburg Road between MLK Jr. Blvd. and W. 8th Avenue. In addition to the standard traffic violations, TEU officers will focus specifically on speeding, following too closely, cell phone use, improper lane changes and failing to obey traffic control devices. These violations contribute to a high frequency and severity of crashes.
We would like to remind the public that winter weather conditions have been present on the roadways, which includes wet pavement, gravel and leaves. These conditions can contribute to limited traction and braking ability for vehicles. During this time of year, the evening commute is now after sunset for most drivers, and further reduces the visibility of other vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians.
The scheduled date for this operation is Wednesday, December 10, 2014.
