Woodbridge First Selectman Ellen Scalettar and Police Chief Frank Cappiello are announcing a new Town-wide traffic awareness initiative aimed at reminding the public about the risks of unsafe driving.

Both Scalettar and Cappiello have received numerous phone calls and emails about speeding and other traffic enforcement issues from concerned residents.

“Although we are a small town, there are more than 80 miles of roadway in Woodbridge,” said Scalettar. “Obviously, our officers cannot be everywhere at all times, but they will do targeted enforcement in certain areas to cut down on safety hazards caused by speeding, texting and other unsafe driving practices.”

“Safety is our number one priority,” said Chief Cappiello. “I am proud to work closely with the First Selectman on this initiative to help keep our roads safe for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.” He explained that in the coming weeks, officers will be assigned to a rotating list of certain streets where they will be stopping motorists for speeding, texting, not wearing a seat belt or other infractions.

Additionally, the Police Department plans to study the effects of the speed bumps that were installed on Landin Street this summer. Shortly after the Landin Street speed bumps were installed, the Town received several requests for additional speed bumps. The result of the study will inform future use of speed bumps throughout Town
