Officers Receive Grant To Monitor Eight Dangerous Intersections More Closely

Thanks to a grant, law enforcement officers in Tucson now have a new tool to help them identify and cite bad drivers at some of the city’s most accident-prone intersections.

The program will focus on eight city intersections that have the highest rate of accidents According to a story appearing on the Tucson.com website, the $70,000 grant was given to the Tucson Police Department in November of 2019 and will allow officers to focus on a number of bad driving behaviors such as speeding, failure to yield, following too closely, running red lights or stop signs and or intoxicated or distracted driving.

So far, approximately 800 Tucson drivers have received citations. Alberto Gutier, director of the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, has praised the Tucson Police Department for doing a fantastic job with the grant that it received.

The following eight intersections will be the primary focus of the grant program:

In Midtown:

  • East Golf Links and South Wilmot Roads
  • East Golf Links and Swan Roads
  • South Alvernon Way and East 22nd Street

North Tucson:

  • North Oracle and West Wetmore Roads
  • East Fort Lowell Road and North First Avenue

South Tucson:

  • South Nogales Highway and East Valencia Road
  • East Irvington Road and South Campbell Avenue

East Tucson:

  • East Grant and East Tanque Verde Roads

The program will occur on various days and hours on an ongoing basis and continue until the end of September 2020.
