Traffic safety in and around school zones in the Sahuarita area is of paramount concern for you, your children, and the Sahuarita Police Department. Beginning on February 7, 2012, Sahuarita motorists can expect to receive tickets, not warnings, if officers find them out on the roads committing traffic violations. Moreover, motorists can also expect that Sahuarita Police will be out in force — before, after and during school hours.
To protect local lives, the Sahuarita Police Department will join together with law enforcement officers, highway safety officials and safety advocates in support of the 2012 Selective Traffic Enforcement mobilization.
Teens and young adults, who neglect to use seatbelts in greater numbers than any other age demographic, are at an increased risk of dying in a crash. Sadly, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for American youth, exceeding all crime- and disease-related causes.
There’s no question about it: Traffic Safety near schools is the priority. Spread the word to your family and friends to buckle up and drive safely. You could save them the cost of a ticket. Even better: You could save a life. Remember: beginning February 7, 2012, it’s Selective Traffic Enforcement.
