The Overland Park Police Department's Traffic Safety Unit will conduct High Visibility Traffic Enforcement on Thursday, April 28, 2011, in the area of I-435 Highway and Metcalf. Last year, more accidents occurred at this intersection than anywhere else in the city.
For the first quarter of 2011, there have been 28 accidents. On a positive note, this number represents a 24% decrease over the same period last year. The officers will be conducting traffic enforcement from 8:00 am to 9:00 am and 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
Officers will enforce all traffic violations, but will be watchful for red light, following too close and seat belt violations.
