Street Patrols

This past week, the Livingston Police Department performed radar and traffic safety enforcement on Falcon Road, North Hillside Avenue, Hillside Avenue, East McClellan Avenue, and Sycamore Avenue. We know this because they told us about these watches, and asked us to write about the patrols in the Tribune, to share the information with residents.

The goal, as Chief Gary Marshuetz let us know, is to get people thinking about how they are driving on local roads, and to make sure they arrive at their destinations safely. Just by alerting residents of the streets to be patrolled, the police department is showcasing some spots in town that are seen as “problem areas” for both traffic and speeding violations.
