Highway Safety

One of the most effective countermeasures in reducing highway traffic fatalities is creating general deterrence through High Visibility Enforcement (HVE). When the perceived risk of getting caught by law enforcement goes up, the likelihood that people will engage in unsafe driving behaviors goes down.

Our goal is to reduce the number of deaths and injuries on our area's roadways by getting drivers, pedestrians and cyclists to change their behaviors once they get behind the wheel or on the streets.

With the support of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety, we employ a number of HVE tactics and initiatives which are detailed in this section of our website.
