Traffic Safety

One of our highest priorities is to ensure the safety of all those who use roadways in Beachwood. As we see it, our job is to make the roadways safer by reducing injuries, property damage, and the loss of life caused by motor vehicle crashes, by:

  • Enforcing the Vehicle and Traffic Law and other regulations;
  • Compiling, analyzing, and sharing data on accident causes; and
  • Providing education on safe driving to schools, civic organizations and other governmental groups.

Special attention is directed at state, county and local controlled access roads for which the Beachwood Police has primary responsibility, and dedicated patrols.  Police Officers on patrol and Traffic safety Officers enforce the Vehicle & Traffic Law, investigate motor vehicle crashes, assist disabled motorists, and provide many other professional services.

This commitment is supported by an aggressive traffic safety program that works to save lives, reduce injuries, and save state residents millions of dollars otherwise expended as a result of crashes.

The Beachwood Police ensures our roadways are safe and that traffic flows efficiently by employing activities such as:

  • Sobriety checkpoints & MVC checkpoints
  • DWI, underage drinking, and speed saturation patrols
  • Dedicated enforcement patrols
  • Radar posts & radar Patrols
  • Site Triangle inspections

Each year, the Traffic Safety Unit develops a comprehensive Traffic Safety Plan focusing on enforcement and education. The activities included in the plan address the three primary causes of crashes and fatalities – excessive speed, driving while intoxicated (DWI), and failure to use seat belts or child safety restraints. The plan also provides for the specialized training and equipment given to our officers to carry out these efforts in cooperation with our Command staff.
