A First Responder Dies Every Other Week on US Roadsides

From Route Fifty, with information from recent research by AAA, on average a first responder is killed every other day.
Our recent webinar, talked about Move Over and the importance for the public to not only be aware and follow the laws, but also how safety is paramount for our first responders and their awareness of their surroundings must be a high priority.

To protect public safety workers and tow truck drivers and reduce tragedies, traffic safety advocates say ‘move over’ laws are needed in all 50 states.

PRESCOTT VALLEY POLICE DEPARTMENT RECEIVES TWO NEW VEHICLES FROM GOHS GRANT

Thanks to a $130,000 grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the Prescott Valley Police Department is adding two 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T vehicles to its patrol fleet. The vehicles will be specifically assigned to aggressively enforce hazardous driving on our roadways. These vehicles will be assigned to officers in the traffic unit for daily enforcement and collision response, as well as being used for special details such as speed enforcement, bicycle/pedestrian safety and impaired driving enforcement.

Prescott Valley streets have seen increased traffic including an increase in aggressive driving and excessive speed citations. There has also been an increase of citizens reporting reckless drivers to our dispatch center. Excessive speed citations have increased by 290% over 2019.

The Department appreciates the consideration of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in giving this grant for the safety of the Prescott Valley community. The Prescott Valley Police Department encourages the public to report any reckless drivers to their local police agency.

It's not just cars and trucks that get the attention of law enforcement when suspected impaired drivers are on the roads....

It’s electric, has three wheels, and if you ride it on the road while drunk, run a stop sign, make U-turns, cut off cars and nearly cause a crash – yeah, that’s not good.

Jordan police made that DWI arrest last week of a scooter rider. His BAC was 0.22.

Impairment of any kind on the road is dangerous.

Extra DWI patrols are statewide through Sept. 6.

First responder tickets are half-price ($10). We’ve got a great band, some big ticket silent auction items, and some great drinks to try, I’m sure. We will be recognizing first responders in attendance.
