Sheriff’s Office Announces New Targeted Traffic Enforcement Areas in El Paso County
In May, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with regional Public Safety partners launched a Targeted Traffic Enforcement Initiative across El Paso County. This initiative was in response to the number of traffic fatalities in the last two years.
Every two months we reevaluate the traffic enforcement areas based on data gathered by our SMART trailer, traffic complaints and traffic crash data provided by Colorado State Patrol. Beginning July 1 – September 1, 2019, the following enforcement areas are considered zero tolerance for moving violations:
On Higby Road between Jackson Creek Parkway and Roller Coaster Road
Hodgen Road/ Baptist Road from Highway 83 to Kingswood Drive
Shoup Road from Black Forest Road to Highway 83
Marksheffel from Hwy 24 to Hwy 94
Peterson Road from Constitution Avenue to Hwy 24
Falcon Highway from Meridian Road to Peyton Highway
Meridian Road from Woodmen Hills to Rex Road
Grinnell Boulevard from Fontaine Boulevard to Bradley Road
Marksheffel Road from Fontaine Boulevard to Mesa Ridge Parkway
Hwy 115 from Pawnee Road to Roca Roja Circle
Colorado Ave from Columbia Road to 31st street
The community can expect to see highly visible and proactive law enforcement in the targeted areas with the goal of creating a deterrence and changing unlawful, dangerous and even deadly traffic behaviors.
