LIVING STREETS CAMPAIGN

During the week of 11/26/12 thru 11/30/12, the Fairfield Police Traffic Safety Unit (TSU) conducted their, “Living Streets” campaign on Mill Plain Road, which educates the public that pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicle traffic must share the road.

Members of the Traffic Safety Unit conducted operations in a targeted area by handing out warnings to speeding motorists informing them of the posted speed limit.  During the weeks following the campaign the TSU teams follows up with strict enforcement.

The Living Streets program raises awareness and consciousness in motorists, which unltimately slows their speeds down after the program is completed.

Please help the Fairfield Police Department keep our roadway safe by slowing down and obeying all traffic related signs, and postings.
