Speeding is a major problem that leads to countless accidents, injuries, and fatalities on roads in Fairfax County every year.
On a recent “County Conversation” podcast Police Captain Alan Hanson discussed the problems of speeding, as well as the police department’s recent “50 Means 50” campaign conducted on the Fairfax County Parkway, which was the site of an incident that nearly cost the life of a county police officer.
During the campaign, police enforced an array of traffic violations with a focus on speeding, reckless speeding, hands-free violations, and licensing violations, issuing:
- 890 traffic summonses
- 163 warning tickets
- Totaling 1,053 observed violations
