Traffic safety has historically been one of the most significant issues identified in citizen surveys.
The Traffic Unit strives to provide a high level of motor vehicle law enforcement combined with educational initiatives and accurate crash scene investigations to enhance the Town’s quality of transportation. The team maintains close working relationships with other Town departments, the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and the Governor’s Highway Safety Program.
Traffic Safety Team members are responsible for the investigation of major crashes, traffic complaints, traffic enforcement, safety programs and training. Officers analyze crash data and respond to citizen complaints to identify hazardous locations and focus on enforcing violations that contribute to crashes. Uniformed patrol officers also assist in enforcing violations of traffic laws throughout town, with an emphasis on Driving While Impaired, Speeding and Occupant Protection.
