This coming week's Project Drive Safe patrol location and safe-driving tip of the week.
This week’s edition of the Yuma Police Department’s on-going traffic safety program, Project Drive Safe! will be at the following location:
- June 5-11, 2017
- Target roadway: 24th Street
- Secondary roadway: undisclosed
- Targeted violations: speeding, cell phone violations, turning, and red light violations.
Safe Driving Tip: Stop signs mean just that, STOP! When you approach a stop sign you are required to come to a complete stop. This means all forward movement of the vehicle must stop. Even if you notice there are no vehicles approaching as you are slowing down, you must come to a complete stop before proceeding. Officers looking for stop sign violations, typically watch the tires of the vehicle to ensure they are not moving. Slowly rolling through a stop sign (sometimes called a California Stop), while yielding to traffic is still a stop sign violation. Drive Safe!
