Dear Fellow Residents of Pawtucket,
Each year, too many families are affected by crashes caused by speeding or running red lights. Sadly, the victims of traffic crashes are often occupants of other vehicles or pedestrians who happen to be in the intersection or near the road.
Improving traffic safety is one of the strategic goals of the Pawtucket Police Department. That is why I am so pleased to report that after much input from the community, we will be installing a traffic enforcement system in Pawtucket. This state-of-the-art system is designed to help us encourage safer driving habits and improve traffic flow. Best of all, it can help us save lives!
Acting Public Safety Director, Chief Tina Goncalves
Cameras will be placed across the City of Pawtucket to detect speeding vehicles in school zones as well as red light runners at key intersections. Speeding fines are set at $50 and red light violation fines are set at $95.
- Mayor Donald R. Grebien
