Fayetteville police step up traffic enforcement on Wedington Drive

Fayetteville police announced the third in a series of directed traffic enforcements at select areas around town.

Officers will monitor traffic on Wedington Drive between Shiloh Avenue and Salem Road on Wednesday, June 27 and Thursday, June 28.

The idea is to bring awareness to drivers regarding traffic collisions and to try and reduce the number of accidents.

Police officers will utilize marked and unmarked vehicles during the directed enforcement and will be 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/left turn
  • Disobeying traffic signals

Officials say these violations are the most common contributing factors to traffic accidents in Fayetteville.
