GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro police are starting an aggressive traffic enforcement campaign in 2014 aimed at making Battleground Avenue safer for drivers.
A spokesperson for the department says warning signs will be posted Monday and then the campaign will begin Tuesday.
For eight weeks, 20 officers will be stationed on a five mile stretch of Battleground Avenue, between West Cornwallis Drive and Horse Pen Creek Road.
Some officers will be in marked cars, while others will be under cover. All will be cracking down on unsafe behavior on the road.
Police did the same thing on Wendover Avenue before the holidays. Officers saturated the road, and they say injuries in traffic accidents fell 21 percent, despite collisions increasing by 3 percent.
Greensboro police say the traffic enforcement campaign comes at no additional cost to the department.
