Traffic Enforcement

 

Traffic Enforcement Plan

As the Fall 2016 semester begins, we will have more people out and about on campus - walking, jogging and riding bikes. As always, our traffic enforcement will be focused on keeping the campus a safe place through education and enforcement.  We will be talking safe walking, running and driving.

 Our officers have noticed pedestrians frequently jaywalking at the Holmes Ave. crosswalk that is near Charger Union. This crosswalk has a traffic control device that stops traffic when triggered by pedestrians. Pedestrians at this crosswalk shall obey the instructions of the traffic control device and not cross the street until instructed to do so. To address this, you will see signs and/or officers at this crosswalk educating pedestrians. Speed education trailers will frequently be placed at this location to inform drivers that the speed limit on Holmes Ave. is 35 M.P.H.

 Our officers have also noticed an increase in speeding on campus.  While speeding is sometimes only a few miles per hour above the limit, it is still dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists.  To address this trend, you will see our speed education trailers out at various locations on campus.  The trailers will be supplemented by our officers making traffic stops and citing those that do not heed the warning devices and posted speed limit.  Remember, the campus speed limit is 25 M.P.H. Drive safely!
