South District Residents Invited To Attend

The South District is hosting its annual Community Traffic Watch Program for South District neighborhood associations next week.

The Community Traffic Watch program is designed to incorporate community involvement in an effort to encourage safe driving behavior on neighborhood streets. Speeding, red light running and other traffic safety issues have been identified as important concerns throughout the South District.

With the assistance of concerned residents documenting traffic issues, MPD can use the information obtained from observations to help focus our traffic enforcement efforts.

Residents can conduct traffic watch observations after attending a one-hour training conducted by officers from the South District. The training will cover use of the laser unit, speed board and red signal observation.

Neighborhood Association members will be able to borrow a laser unit to assist with documenting speed violations.
