Chapel Hill Police Speed-Enforcement Initiatives

Post Date:08/04/2017 11:56 AM

Travel with care and pay attention when driving, walking and biking.

As part of our ongoing effort to create and preserve a safe community in which to travel, the Chapel Hill Police Department and area partners will continue speed enforcement and Watch For Me N.C. initiatives throughout the month of August.

Officers may issue information, warnings or citations for anyone for violating laws. Fines and court costs for these violations begin at $213.

Multiple officers will monitor the following areas (in addition to normal Chapel Hill Police patrol practices) to encourage and enforce safe behavior from everyone:

  • 9-10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, Southern Village
  • 8-11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
  • 10-11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 29, Franklin Street
  • 1-3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 29, NC Highway 54 and South Columbia Street
  • 6-8 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 31, Raleigh Road and US Highway 15-501

Watch For Me N.C. is a statewide safety initiative designed to improve relationships on roads between people who drive, people who walk, people who roll and people who bike. People may receive helpful information, warnings, and in some cases, tickets for violations during these initiatives.
