In continuing with this week’s directed traffic enforcement plans, the Fayetteville Police Department announced it will begin directed traffic enforcement on the east side of town in an effort to reduce vehicle accidents on Crossover Road.

Enforcement starts Thursday, June 30 at the intersection of Mission Blvd. and Crossover Rd., and the intersection of Old Wire Rd. and Crossover Rd.

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 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 Crossover Road, 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.
