BSO targets high-crash intersections in Deerfield Beach

The Broward Sheriff's Office is cracking down on speeders, red light runners and other unsafe drivers at several Deerfield Beach intersections.,Last year, more than 2,600 traffic accidents were reported to BSO in Deerfield Beach. Records indicate a significant number of those collisions occurred near the areas where Hillsboro Boulevard and SW 10th Street join Federal Highway, Military Trail and Powerline Road.,Beginning January 20, 2003 and continuing through the end of the month, deputies will target high-crash incident intersections in Deerfield Beach, strictly enforcing traffic laws. Each weekday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the enforcement operation, motor deputies will observe those intersections, focusing on motorists who run red lights, speed or drive aggressively or in an unsafe manner.,Exceeding the posted speed limit remains one of the most significant factors leading to traffic crashes. Speeding reduces reaction time and increases the stopping distance of a vehicle. BSO reminds all drivers to adhere to the posted speed limit, pay attention to traffic control devices, be courteous to those sharing the road and always wear a seat belt.
