A slew of traffic complaints, plus the onset of warm weather beckoning pedestrians and bicyclists to the roadways, have prompted the to announce a 3-day traffic enforcement initiative.
According to a release sent out by the department, officers will be out in full force April 2-4 cracking down on moving violations. The focus will be on major streets and around schools.
Distracted driving, rolling through stop signs, no seatbelts, ignoring pedestrians–those and many more traffic violations will be given extra attention during the traffic enforcement initiative, the department said.
"The Dearborn Police Department reminds citizens that safety on our roadways and around our schools is everyone's responsibility," the release said. "While the police are committed to improving safety by increasing compliance with traffic laws through education and enforcement, we rely on the cooperation of the public to be aware of and to follow all traffic laws, whether as a pedestrian, bicyclist or motorist."
Dearborn Chief of Police Ronald Haddad added, "If our entire community works together to promote safe driving, we can ensure that Dearborn remains a safe place to live and work."
