The Greenville Police Department Traffic Unit will be performing intensive traffic enforcement on and around the Woodruff Road area, beginning June 15th. This activity is prompted by a rising number of traffic collisions and citizen complaints. In particular, traffic violations such as blocking intersections, aggressive driving will be addressed.
To enhance traffic flow and increase safety, intersections must remain clear. Pulling into an intersection without being able to pull through it only serves to impede flow and increase collisions. Driving with aggression along this corridor also impedes the flow of traffic and increases risk of collision.
In addition to the campaign, the Police Department is working closely with City Traffic Engineering to assess signal timing at Woodruff Road, where it intersects with Garlington Road and Market Point Drive. The goal of this effort is to determine if adjustments in signal timing can help improve traffic flow and increase safety.
The Police Department is notifying the media and public through this media release, its website, social media and the use of signboards. As with all efforts to improve the safety and security, the success of the campaign will rest largely on the active cooperation and support of the public we serve.
