Chapel Hill Police Travel-Safety Initiatives

Post Date:03/07/2018 4:26 PM

The safety of everyone who travels is a shared responsibility.

The Chapel Hill Police Department recorded 50 speeding violations during February’s travel-safety initiatives, which are conducted in addition to normal patrols. To see last month’s locations, visit

With the help of area partners, the March dates have been scheduled to continue speed enforcement and Watch For Me N.C. initiatives. These initiatives are an effort to continue to preserve and enhance a safe community in which to travel, whether on two wheels, four wheels, two feet, or other methods. Let’s bring the number of violations down for the month of March!

Officers may issue information, warnings or citations to 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:

  • 8-9 a.m. Tuesday, March 13, South Columbia Street
  • 2-4 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, Weaver Dairy Road and Weaver Dairy Road Extension
  • All day Thursday, March 15, Franklin Street and Rosemary Street
  • 5:30-7:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 20, Manning Drive
  • 6-8 a.m. Tuesday, March 27, Mt. Carmel Church Road

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.
