Police Send a Reminder: 50 MEANS 50

            The Traffic Division of the Operations Support Bureau and the Patrol Division of the Fairfax County Police Department will launch their weeklong initiative, “50 Means 50” as they saturate the Fairfax County Parkway next week.

            The annual campaign kicks off on Sunday, April 21, and targets aggressive and reckless driving, speeding, texting while driving, following too closely, and failure to pay full time and attention on the Fairfax County Parkway. Last year, during the same time period, officers issued 714 citations on the Parkway for offenses in these categories.

            Motor squad officers along with patrol officers from several district stations throughout the county will be assigned specific enforcement duties along the parkway.

            A variety of vehicles will be utilized including: motorcycles, Mustangs, Camaros, Impalas, pick-up trucks and other unmarked and marked police vehicles.

            The stepped-up enforcement will take place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

            The intent of the initiative is to reduce the overall average speed on the parkway and to reduce the number of property damage, injury, and fatal crashes, making the parkway a safer roadway. 

Keeping our eyes open for speeders and dangerous drivers.
