The Hickory Police Department’s focused traffic enforcement will return to Hwy 127 from 1st Ave SW to 29th Ave DR NE. This will be the seventh phase for P.A.C.T. – Pay Attention in City Traffic. Enforcement focus will include: red light violations, distracted driving and speeding.
As always, citizens are encouraged to be vigilant and observe all traffic laws, avoid utilizing mobile and digital devices and maintain driving awareness near crosswalks and areas of pedestrian traffic, especially with schools beginning their new year.
To-date, Hickory Police have found that the P.A.C.T. initiative has been successful in the reduction of traffic crashes and speeding complaints.
