As most of you know we had a deadly travel season last year. Several people lost their lives right here in town in those accidents. We are dedicated this year in seeing that everyone stays safe! The Ash Flat Police Dept. are looking for several factors that play a major part that cause accidents. So when you see us setting along side of the road we will be especially watching for these types of driving characteristics.
1. Excessive speed, the speed limit on highways in town is 40 mph unless marked otherwise.
2. Texting,Drinking,Drugs and driving. (Impaired driving)
3. Aggressive driving. (passing illegally,weaving in and out of traffic speeding. Careless driving putting others at risk.
4. Children not properly in child seats.
5. Trucks of all sizes pulling trailers tailgating and failing to give themselves time to stop at the stoplight because they're going to fast to stop.
So when you see the Ash Flat Police cars and trucks setting along side of the road, we are watching with radar and our eyes. Please take note if you won't obey traffic laws we will stop you!!!
