A note from Kate Bullock

The Franklin Precinct has reported on their first 30 day traffic Enforcement Zone in Glyndon. While the Precinct reported being surprised by the results, Glyndon residents will not be surprised.

Traffic monitoring occurred on 18 of the 30 days. Measured against limited resources, Glyndon received double the response that would normally be devoted to most traffic complaints.

  • 43 Citations have been issued (not broken down by traffic offense)
  • 32 Warnings have been issued (not broken down by traffic offense)
  • 1 Arrest has been made for driving on a suspended license
  • 1 Overweight vehicle has been towed due to the number of
    prior offenses

Of particular significance to the Precinct, were the number of overweight trucks.

This represents such a high volume of traffic offenses, that the Franklin Precinct will continue to monitor what they recognize as a significant traffic problem. The Precinct’s objective is to change driving behavior. If they are successful, this will not only create a safer situation during construction, but will have a long term impact on overall traffic safety for Glyndon.

We can all be greatly appreciative of the efforts being made by the Franklin Precinct.
