CR528 SAFETY INITIATIVE BRINGS SAFER DRIVING
Since the June 17th start of the CR528 Police Partnership Safety Initiative, the partnering police agencies have stopped a total of 311 vehicles during their coordinated saturation patrols, accounting for 211 summons issued and six (6) arrests.
Most disturbing was that seatbelt summons topped the charts at 73. It can’t be stressed enough the importance of wearing seatbelts for the safety of all vehicle occupants. Most important is the fact that a good majority of motorists are choosing to drive responsibly as highlighted by the fact only 8 speeding summons were issued during the detail ending on June 30th . OCPO and the partnering agencies pray that trend continues making for a safer roadway.
The coordinated enforcement element has concluded, but policing agencies along CR528 will continue to make traffic safety patrols a priority. Now that the partnership logistics and plans have been worked out, the coordinated enforcement element can be quickly reinstituted in the event of increased reports of accidents or dangerous driving behaviors. We continue to ask the motoring public to police themselves by simply driving responsibly.
