Safe Zones for the Week of 12-4-17

Post Date:12/04/2017 8:47 AM

One of the goals of the Odessa Police Department is a motoring public, which is safe, courteous and accident free. In pursuit of this goal, the Department will periodically designate “Safe Zones” throughout the city. These “Safe Zones” are areas in which traffic enforcement will be increased in an effort to gain traffic law compliance.

Expect to see officers of the Odessa Police Department working these areas singly or in groups in an effort to gain compliance through education and enforcement.

Officers working “Safe Zones” will be enforcing all traffic laws but will pay close attention to red light, stop sign, speeding and other moving violations.

The “Safe Zones” we would like our motoring public to be aware of for this week are the 3800-5300 block of East 42nd Street, the 2200 block of West 2nd Street, and the intersection of 42nd and JBS Parkway. The Odessa Police Department will also focus on shopping centers within the city limits.

Please take note of this “Safe Zone” and remind your family and friends we will be taking enforcement action in this area next week. By working together and obeying the law, perhaps we can reduce traffic crashes, injuries and most importantly fatalities by making our streets a safer place on which to drive on.
