Default Gaithersburg Police Launch Pedestrian Safety Initiative

Gaithersburg Police Department   
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE    September 1, 2010                                          


Gaithersburg Police Launch Pedestrian Safety Initiative

Gaithersburg, MD (September 1, 2010) The Gaithersburg Police Department is conducting an initiative to increase awareness of pedestrian safety through education and enforcement efforts. The campaign is made possible through a grant received from the Maryland State Highway Administration.

The Gaithersburg Police Department will begin education and enforcement actions along Route 355 in Gaithersburg, focusing on pedestrians not properly using crosswalks and drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians. The initiative will run from September 13-24, 2010. Drivers and pedestrians observed in violation may receive a citation or a preprinted warning.

Pedestrian safety along Route 355 remains a concern of the police, especially in the area of North Frederick Avenue where citizens often cross against the pedestrian signal, putting themselves at risk of being struck by a vehicle.

For more information please call 301-258-6400 or visit online.
