The Frederick Police Department continues to work towards safer streets in and around the City of Frederick. Officers designated as traffic specialists use data and citizen complaint information to designate locations within the city as “selective traffic enforcement zones." Those designated zones will now have signs posted in the area to educate drivers that the area is a designated selective traffic enforcement zone. Officers will conduct frequent traffic enforcement within these designated zones. The zones will be evaluated monthly and the goal of the project is to use the monthly data and complaint information to determine if the designated areas need to be moved throughout the city.
Based on current data and citizen complaints the following areas are the current “Designated Traffic Enforcement Zones:"
- Lee Place from Rosemont Ave. to West Seventh Street
- Christopher's Crossing from Opossumtown Pike to Thomas Johnson Drive
- Bel Aire Lane from Key Parkway to Schaffer Drive
