[ARCHIVED] Traffic Enforcement Unit to focus on areas of high crash-rates

Officers with the Eugene Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Unit will be focusing on areas that statistics have shown to have high crash-rates. Multiple officers will enforce all traffic laws with attention primarily focused on the following violations:

• Speed
• Cell phone (distracted driving)
• Seat belts
• Following too closely
• Lane violations

Officers will make traffic stops at several different locations over the course of six days. Here is the list of the following days and locations:

• February 26 - Valley River Way and Valley River Drive
