Albemarle Police Increase Traffic Enforcement During Holiday Travels

Share it Please
In the midst of the busy Thanksgiving travel week, the Albemarle County Police Department is participating in the national Click-It-or-Ticket campaign.
The nationwide campaign is currently underway and will conclude on Thursday, November 27th.
Additional ACPD officers will be on the roadway enforcing traffic laws with a strong emphasis on speeding, seatbelt usage and child safety seat usage. Wearing a seatbelt is the single most effective way to save your life while on the road. We ask that all citizens obey the posted speed limits, always have everyone in the vehicle buckle-up and always have a sober driver.
As the holiday season continues, we also want to remind people about the dangers of drinking and driving. December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month.
During the month of December, the ACPD will be conducting extra enforcement for DUI and drugged driving. As you plan for holiday parties and events, plan ahead with a sober driver.
Traffic safety and enforcement remains a top priority for the Albemarle County Police Department. Our goal through the Click-It-or-Ticket campaign and DUI enforcement is to enforce the law in order to save more lives.
Drive safe, drive sober and make it home for the holidays.
