FPD announce traffic safety/speeding detail

In response to several citizen complaints about speeding vehicles in their neighborhoods, the Fife Police Department will be conducting city wide speed enforcement details beginning this week.  The goal of these details is not to necessarily write speeding tickets, though some will be issued, but to educate motorists about speed limits at different locations in the city and to make city streets safe for the citizens that live on them.  Officers will also be looking for other violations including defective vehicle equipment and overweight vehicles traveling on roads that are prohibited to them.  
The first detail will be:

March 21st on Freeman Road between Valley Ave E and North Levee Rd.     

Questions or comments can be directed to Lieutenant T. Thompson at 253-896-8287.
