PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Public Safety Department continues their diligent work to ensure the safety of our students, teachers and parents through the Public Safety Camera Program by making vehicle operators aware of the need to slow down. Through this program, the Department is announcing that three red light cameras will go live effective Monday, March 23rd. As each camera goes live, they will all have a thirty-day grace period.
The red light cameras have all been installed and will continue to come on live incrementally. The cameras coming live now are located at Division Street & Prospect Street, Division Street & School Street, Benefit Street & Newport Avenue.
“Improving traffic safety is one of the strategic goals of the Pawtucket Police Department. We continue to work through the process of ensuring that vehicle operators are driving safely as Pawtucket is a dense city with many pedestrians,” said Acting Public Safety Director and Police Chief Tina Goncalves. “The best way to do so is by consistently raising awareness, as the department has done, so that drives are conscious of good driving habits while on the road.”
As the Public Safety Department continues to explore new and innovative ways to make sure that we educate the drivers to slow down, we will invest in the appropriate avenues to make our city safer for pedestrians. We ask and remind all drivers to focus in on the safety of our children and residents.
