Huntsville Police Awarded Grant’s for Traffic Initiatives
Huntsville, Alabama (October 08, 2013) Huntsville Police Chief Lewis Morris announced officers will be stepping up traffic enforcement at selected locations throughout Huntsville for the next year. HPD has been awarded a grant by the State’s Traffic Safety Office (ADECA) specifically targeted at dangerous intersections which are identified by high crashes and DUI related involvements. These “HOT SPOTS” will be targeted with special enforcement efforts at selected times based on the past crash data provided by the State. The grant totaling over $75,000.00 will be used to pay officers overtime for enforcing traffic laws at these locations. Officers will be looking for prime contributing circumstances of these locations including following too closely, running red lights, speeding, and DUI.
