Motorists: New signage warns of increased enforcement

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 paying close attention to drivers’ actions. The new signs are posted along Patterson Road from Seventh Street to 28 1/4 Road and on North Avenue from First Street to 12th St.

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, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

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, the police department said.
