MPD issues new traffic safety initiative

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department is inacting the following initiatives in an effort to increase traffic safety.

  • Rush Hour Detail: The Dodge Chargers will stage on the interstates during rush hour traffic. The focus of our enforcement is speeding and dangerous lane changing.
  • School Zone Detail: Officers will be assigned to enforce the speed limit in school zones throughout the city. Supervisors will create a roster to rotate the locations throughout the week and month. Most all schools should see the presence of an officer within a reasonable period of time.
  • Red Light Enforcement: Traffic Officers will stage at intersections that do not have cameras to cite violators that run red lights. Our primary focus will be at intersections with the most accidents.
  • DUI Enforcement: Supervisors will rotate the hours of some traffic personnel in order to have extra traffic officers on the streets during the time periods we typically see an increase in DUI offenses. Officers will enforce zero tolerance on DUI offenders.
