Alachua County and Gainesville Commissions vote unanimously to declare a “traffic violence crisis”
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - The Alachua County Commission and the Gainesville City Commission voted unanimously in declaring a “traffic violence crisis.”
This comes after several pedestrian accidents occurred in the last month, including the death of a 5-year-old in Alachua.
In their motion, both commissions agreed on a targeting campaign in educating drivers on pedestrian safety.
The county commission’s motion was similar to the cities’ but with the added motion of sending a letter to the Alachua County sheriff to ask him to participate in enforcement discussions with Gainesville Police Department officials.
