Post 15 Initiatives for March 2007
Date of News Release: 03/07/07
(Columbia, KY) - In March of 2006 105 people were injured in automobile collisions within the Post 15 area. This was the highest one month total in 2006, based on CRASH data.
With this in mind Post 15 will be stepping up enforcement efforts across the 11 county area in an effort to lower that number in 2007.
Several safety checkpoints, saturated patrols, and enforcement details are currently being planned with a goal of reducing injury accidents.
Officers will observe for any traffic violation with emphasis on, but not limited to, DUI'S, SPEEDING, RECKLESS DRIVING, TAILGATING, AND ANYONE NOT PROPERLY WEARING A SEATBELT
This enforcement initiative kicked off this past weekend and will continue through the entire month of March.
Everyone is encouraged to do their part by observing posted speed limits and especially buckling up.
