Dixon Police Announce Enhanced Traffic Safety Program

As we continue to work towards a safer community, the Dixon Police Department is launching an enhanced traffic safety enforcement program for 2023 focusing on speed and stop sign/traffic signal violations. Our goal is to reduce the number of accidents and incidents on our roads and ensure everyone is safe while driving, walking, or cycling.

Traffic safety is not just a priority for the Police Department but for the entire community. When we drive, we affect not only ourselves but also those around us. Reckless or careless driving can cause serious accidents and even fatalities, which can have a lasting impact on our loved ones and community. In addition, traffic accidents can also cause significant damage to property, disrupt traffic flow, and waste valuable emergency services resources.

By following traffic laws, we can significantly reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. Obeying speed limits helps to reduce the severity of accidents and allows for more time for reaction in emergencies. Adhering to traffic signals and stop signs helps to prevent collisions, keep traffic moving smoothly, and ensure the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, and other drivers.

We encourage everyone to be responsible and mindful while driving. If we all work together, we can create a safer community for everyone. Remember, even a minor violation can have devastating consequences. So, let's take a stand for traffic safety and help keep our roads safe for all.

Along with dedicated traffic safety enforcement, the Dixon Police Department will conduct dedicated impaired driving and vehicle safety activities throughout the year.
