Traffic Enforcement Statistics

One of the most important factors in keeping the streets of Independence safe for everyone is the enforcement side of our mission. The cost of human suffering and broken lives is too great a price to pay for not doing so. Taking into account the tremendous growth and increased traffic in and around Independence, the number of motor vehicles accidents have significantly decreased. A primary reason for that is because of the proactive enforcement of traffic laws and educating the public.
