Operation Safe Streets a Success

The Montgomery County Police Department continued its commitment to traffic and pedestrian safety with a new “Operation Safe Streets” enforcement initiative that kicked-off in early May.  

Operation Safe Streets deploys officers from all six traffic squads on selected road corridors, in locations with a high number of pedestrian collisions, and in designated Safe Routes to Schools areas.  Using several strategies, officers target a variety of traffic offenses committed by both drivers and pedestrians.  These include speeding, turning violations, red light running, failure to obey traffic control devices, failure to yield to pedestrians and pedestrian violations at intersections.  Both driver and pedestrian offenders receive citations. 

Officers will continue to conduct this intensive enforcement on a regular basis throughout the year.  For more information about the results of the most recent Operation Safe Streets, visit the County’s website.
