Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Campaign 

                Officers from the Franconia District Station conducted a pedestrian safety campaign from July 27 through August 10. Last year, the Franconia District Station had 31 crashes involving pedestrians and bicyclists in Fairfax County last year and so far eight in 2011.

                The campaign was primarily educational with the goal of gaining voluntary compliance, though teams of officers were out enforcing state and local traffic laws.  Officers stopped drivers and pedestrians. They passed out 447 informational flyers in English and Spanish, issued five tickets and 227 warnings. Information on the Street Smart initiative can be found on the Street Smart webpage.

                Pedestrian safety is a collaborative effort between pedestrians and motorists. Pedestrian safety is a high priority of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.  For information about the Fairfax County Pedestrian Program, go to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fcdot/pedestrian/.
