The Warrington Township Police Department has announced that state-of-the-art red light enforcement system is coming to the municipality in an effort to help make their community safer. Warrington will be the first municipality in Bucks County to implement this.
Improving traffic safety is one of the strategic goals of the Warrington Township Police Department. After much debate and consideration, the department has installed a traffic enforcement system at two intersections: Easton Road (Route 611) and Bristol Road and Easton Road (Route 611) and Street Road.
These two intersections were chosen based on a study conducted by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to include the number of violations, the number of crashes (especially crashes with injuries) and the difficulty to effectively and safely conduct “traditional enforcement” at these intersections. Warrington was approved for this program by PennDOT based on their study and our police department being an accredited law enforcement agency.
The system is anticipated by officials to become active by the end of January 2024 and the township will offer a 60-day grace period that will come with a warning before citations begin to be issued.
This enforcement program is effective at deterring speeding and red light running, reducing crashes and ultimately saving lives.
