The Fayetteville Police Department this week announced it would begin directed traffic enforcement in an effort to reduce vehicle accidents on College Avenue.

Directed traffic enforcement will begin Wednesday, June 29 at the intersection of College Avenue and Joyce Boulevard.

The goal, police say, is to bring awareness to drivers regarding traffic collisions.

Officers will use marked and unmarked units while looking for the following violations:

  • Following too close
  • Improper use of center lane
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to signal turn or lane changes
  • Improper right turn
  • Disobeying traffic signals

From the news release:

These violations have consistently been the most common contributing factors to traffic crashes in Fayetteville and nationwide. The directed enforcement will work other intersections along College Avenue, on different dates, and keep the public notified as to where and when the enforcements will take place. The Fayetteville Police Department is dedicated to reducing crashes and increasing safety on Fayetteville streets. This enforcement campaign is part of a comprehensive plan to improve transportation safety in the City of Fayetteville.
