As an ongoing effort to deter aggressive driving and bring attention to the importance of wearing your seatbelt, Lower Pottsgrove Township receives grant money periodically throughout the year from the State to conduct traffic enforcement throughout the Township. These enforcement efforts occur outside of officer's normal duty hours and add to the enforcement that occurs throughout an officer's regularly scheduled shift.
Our most recent grants focused on Aggressive Driving and Buckle Up PA. During these enforcement periods (which ran concurrently from October 22, 2018 until December 2, 2018), Lower Pottsgrove Officers came in contact with 57 drivers. From those contacts, officers issued 57 citations, made 2 DUI arrests and 2 drug arrests.
Officers will continue their efforts to enforce and deter traffic violations to ensure the safety of motorists and residents.
