During the month of September, the Lebanon Police Department will be increasing motor vehicle enforcement patrols in an effort to reduce traffic accidents within the City, and to address citizens’ reported motor vehicle concerns. These patrols will consist of high visibility saturation patrols using marked and unmarked patrol cars. The patrols will be concentrated along the routes and at times of day that have been identified as having the most number of accidents. These include the main commuter and shopping routes that run through the City. These high visibility patrols will be targeting motor vehicle violations that increase the risk of accidents, which include speed, following too closely, stop light and stop sign violations, along with distracted driving habits such as texting and other cell phone use.
