BY SERGEANT BRET CONNORS – OGDEN POLICE DEPARTMENT
Ogden Police are ramping up traffic enforcement and want to remind motorists to slow down. Speeding puts yourself and others at unnecessary risk and is one of the main causes of traffic- related fatalities in Ogden. Please slow down and do your part to keep our children and our community members safe.
During this time of COVID, with kids in and out of school, the Ogden Police Department would also like to remind you to watch for crossing guards, school zones, and pedestrians throughout the city. The Ogden Police Traffic Division has increased traffic enforcement in some of our main areas, such as Harrison Blvd, 12th Street, and Monroe Blvd. Please understand that when a crossing guard steps from the curb and their stop sign is up, both directions of travel must come to a complete stop. Where flashing yellow lights are present, there will be zero tolerance for speeds over 20 MPH, and we would urge people to travel under this speed during low light conditions, bad weather conditions, or anytime children are present.
