Holiday Traffic Initiative Aims to Increase Road Safety
Expect to see increased police presence
In an effort to reduce collisions, loss of life and damage to property, the Pflugerville Police Department has initiated its targeted traffic enforcement campaign, ‘Operation Safe Travels’.
Now through January 1, 2019, residents can expect to see increased police presence at these intersections, identified as the top three for collisions: East Pecan Street and FM 685, Kelly Lane and FM 685, and N. Heatherwilde Boulevard and Wilke Lane. This campaign will also target the FM 685/Stone Hill Town Center corridor.
The primary causes for collisions at these intersections have been identified as following too closely/failing to control speed, failing to yield the right-of-way turning left, as well as driver inattention.
The Pflugerville Police Department reminds residents to leave themselves plenty of time to travel to their destinations, focus on the roadway at all times and slow down so they can safely enjoy the spirit of the season.
