Traffic Safety & Education

In 1999, the City Council initiated a Traffic Education, Engineering, and Enforcement program to respond to neighborhood traffic concerns. This program employs a traffic management team comprised of Police and Engineering Department experts who emphasize education, engineering and enforcement to improve traffic safety.

Communication

  • Use speed trailer* and other educational devices such as neighborhood newsletters and speed limit reminder signs to increase awareness.
  • Engineering and Police staff attend neighborhood meetings to inform residents regarding policies and procedures, to answer questions, and explain what residents can do to reduce speeds in their neighborhood.

*A speed trailer is a device used by the Police Department to supplement radar enforcement. The display board shows the posted speed limit and the speed of the vehicle approaching the trailer. Drivers become aware of the speed they are traveling, and many slow down. The trailer can be used on most streets that are wide enough to park the trailer out of the way of traffic.
