Because nobody wants a speeding ticket as a Christmas gift, the Pflugerville Police Department is launching Phase 2 of their holiday traffic initiative so you won't get one.

Pflugerville residents will soon notice that there is an increased police presence on the roads, due to the department's new targeted traffic enforcement campaign to increase road safety.

Called "Operation Safe Travels", the initiative is working to reduce traffic collisions, loss of life, and damage to property. They will be emphasizing patrol for unsafe driving, drunk driving, and seatbelt and car seat violations. The initiative will take place on Dec. 21 to Jan 2. The first part of the holiday traffic initiative took place over the Thanksgiving holiday.

According to a press release by Pflugerville PD, efforts will be focused on FM 685, East and West Pecan Street, North and South Heatherwilde Boulevard and Stone Hill Town Center roads, which have been identified as areas with the highest potential for crashes based on the department’s data.

PPD always reminds and encourages drivers to give themselves plenty of time to travel to their destinations, to focus on the road at all times, and remember to slow down and enjoy the spirit of the season.
