Davidson Police Department Increases Enforcement in Town

Davidson Police Department Increases Enforcement in Town

 

The Davidson Police Department will increase the enforcement of speed limits, school bus passing, school zones, and crosswalk violations in town in an effort to protect all of our citizens – pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists. The majority of the speed limits in town are 25 miles per hour.

“This is timed with the start of school,” said Davidson Police Chief Penny Dunn. “Remember 25 means 25 and we want everyone to be safe drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. We have seen a recent increase in auto-pedestrian collisions and near-misses while pedestrians were crossing properly in crosswalks.”

The enforcement of state traffic laws and town ordinances include:

  • passing a school bus while loading or unloading
  • unlawful use of mobile telephones for text messaging or electronic mail
  • speeding
  • vehicle driver violations of a crosswalk
  • pedestrian violations of not using a crosswalk (commonly referred to as “jaywalking”) or
  • crossing against a traffic light or crossing indicator.

“Awareness and voluntary compliance leads to better public safety for everyone,” said Chief Dunn.
