To help enforce motor and pedestrian laws, Elon University Campus Safety and Police will begin a weeklong traffic safety education and enforcement campaign Nov. 11.
This is the second year the department has conducted a campaign related to implementing motor vehicle safety.
“We do this in efforts to raise the awareness of pedestrian safety, especially now that it is getting darker earlier,” said Dennis Franks, director of Campus Safety and Police. “It is also an effort to reduce risky or aggressive driving on and around campus.”
Franks said the department will be focusing on unsafe and aggressive driving, and there will be repercussions — warnings and citations — for violators. He said pedestrian violations include failing to obey pedestrian signals and failing to walk on sidewalks when possible.
In addition to enforcing laws, Franks said Elon police officers will hand out pedestrian safety flyers in locations across campus.
