GREENWICH, Conn. — Police were outside Greenwich High School this week handing out tickets and warnings to teenagers and parents in an effort to cut down on unsafe driving, according to Greenwich Time.
Four officers were part of the step up of traffic enforcement on Wednesday and Thursday, and observed numerous drivers using cell phones, making unsafe U-turns, or dropping off passengers in unsafe areas of Hillside Road, Greenwich Time reported.
The increased enforcement was ordered after police became concerned about the number of people committing driving violations during the morning drop-off period, Greenwich Time said. More students have been getting dropped off at school, as opposed to walking or taking the bus, and there is an increased worry about potential conflicts between drivers and pedestrians, police told Greenwich Time.
Police are planning more enforcement later this month, Greenwich Time reported.
