Grand Junction police to focus on city’s most accident-prone areas

Grand Junction police officers are serious about reducing crashes in the city’s most accident-prone routes.

New street signs heading into some of these areas warn motorists that officers will be watching drivers’ actions. The new signs are along Patterson Road from Seventh Street to 28 1/4 Road, and on North Avenue from First Street to 12th Street.

Officers will be paying close attention to traffic violations including speeding, running red lights, following too closely, turning left in front of oncoming traffic and making unsafe lane changes, the Police Department said in a news release.

Traffic enforcement in these areas may be responsible for reducing crashes. The city saw an 11 percent decrease in high-crash areas in 2010 compared to 2009, according to police.
