Driver Awareness Campaign

In an ongoing effort to keep the roadways safe for the citizens of Overland Park and the thousands of motorists who travel our roadways on a daily basis, officers from the Traffic Safety Unit and TAC unit will team up to work the department's monthly Accident Reduction Initiative.

On Tuesday, April 10th, 2012, special attention will be given to the following locations:

10:30 am to Noon
87th Street & US 69 Hwy/Lenexa Drive
103rd Street and US 69 Highway

12:15 pm to 2:00 pm
College & US 69 Highway
119th Street & US 69 Highway

2:50 pm to 4:30 pm
I-435 & Roe Ave.
I-435 & Nall Ave

4:45 pm to 5:45 pm
I-435 Highway & Metcalf Ave
I-435 Highway & Antioch Rd.

The primary goals of the monthly enforcement initiatives are to reduce accidents and to get drivers and passengers to buckle up. Another benefit of the Accident Reduction Initiative is the prevention of crime by saturating these areas with police officers.
