The New Canaan Police Department will increase its efforts this Friday to target drivers that violate traffic laws, according to a statement released by Captain Leon Krolikowski.
Several officers will be assigned exclusively to traffic enforcement duties throughout the day, Krolikowski said.
Those officers will be on patrol in both marked and unmarked vehicles to target drivers that exceed the speed limit, use handheld cellular phones while driving, pass stopped school buses, follow other vehicles to closely and violate other traffic laws in ways that may cause accidents, he said.
The assigned officers will pay particular attention to the following roads, which according to Krolikowski, have increased rates of motor vehicle accidents or are locations where residents have reported violations of traffic safety laws:
- Heritage Hill Road
- Jelliff Mill Road
- New Norwalk Road
- Oenoke Ridge Road
- Old Stamford Road (Route 106; becomes Hoyt Street in Darien)
- Ponus Ridge Road
- Silvermine Road
- Smith Ridge Road
- South Avenue (Route 124; becomes Mansfield Avenue in Darien)
- Weed Street
