City of Falls Church Launches New Road Safety Program

City of Falls Church Launches New Road Safety Program

From the City of Falls Church:

The City of Falls Church’s new road safety program, designed to prevent dangerous red-light running, has undergone a successful one-month trial period.  Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, Falls Church Police will begin issuing citations to motorists who run red lights at two intersections where cameras have been installed.   The Falls Church Focus on Safety Program aims to protect drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians from injuries or crashes caused by red-light runners. The City installed intersection safety cameras at Broad and Cherry Streets and at Broad Street and Annandale Road.  For 30 days, from Dec. 18 until Jan. 18, the City issued warnings to drivers caught on camera running a red light.  

The City chose the two Broad Street intersections noted above after evaluating where red-light running commonly occurs and where intersection safety cameras are most likely to improve safety.

The Falls Church Focus on Safety Program

From the City of Falls Church:

Beginning in mid-January, 2011, the City of Falls Church will begin issuing citations to motorists who run red lights. Intersection Safety Cameras have been installed at the eastbound and westbound approaches at Broad and Cherry Streets and at Broad Street and Annandale Road.

As part of the Falls Church Focus on Safety Program, the City of Falls Church reminds drivers to always approach an intersection safely. Drivers should always slow down and prepare to make a complete stop when a light turns yellow. Yellow lights inform drivers about a change in traffic flow. Always yield to pedestrians as they have the right of way and always come to a full and complete stop before turning right on red. It's the law. Make sure the roadway is clear before proceeding and work with us to improve traffic safety in our community.
