Police Announce Dangerous Driving Enforcement Near Schools
Raytown, MO – School starts tomorrow in Raytown, 08-16-17, and the Raytown Police Department will resume efforts to reduce dangerous driving near Raytown’s schools.
What is different, though, is that, each week, police will announce in advance which specific school areas the dangerous driving enforcement will be occurring. If advanced notice of the enforcement reduces dangerous driving, the community goal of safer roadways for our children is reached, potentially with no tickets issued! It’s a “win-win.” Of course, our officers will be present to stop and speak with those that choose to drive dangerously anyway. The goal is to reduce dangerous driving near schools, not issue citations; that’s why the specific areas of enforcement will be announced in advance.
During the week of August 16 through 18, dangerous driving enforcement will occur near:
Raytown High School
Blue Ridge Elementary
Spring Valley Elementary
Officers will still be conducting their patrol of other areas and roadways; though they will specifically be present near those designated schools each week.
