The Marietta Police Department recently developed a public safety campaign encouraging drivers to slow down, wear their seat belt and obey the law in an effort to help keep the city's roads safe.
About Slow Down Marietta
- Police department planned for two months
- Two-pronged approach: education and enforcement
- Reminds drivers to slow down, wear seat belt and obey traffic laws
- Message boards, speed trailers and "Cop Cab" located citywide to remind drivers of importance of slowing down and obeying law
- Officers will then actively enforce traffic laws in city
"Life is precious, and it is our effort to make sure we do all that is possible to keep every life on the roadways of Marietta as safe as possible," Marietta Police officer David Baldwin said.
Traffic fatalities decreased in the city from 2011 to 2012.
