The Marietta Police Department announced its new initiative titled “Slow Down Marietta” in a proactive effort to keep the roads in Marietta safe for the driving public.
Two months in the making, the program has a dual concept of education and enforcement. This initiative is designed to remind drivers to slow down, wear a seatbelt and obey traffic laws.
The first week of the campaign is formatted to be the educational promotion of safe driving in Marietta. Message boards, speed trailers and the “Cop Cab” will be placed all over the city to remind and educate drivers on the importance of slowing down and obeying traffic laws.
The initiative then jumps into the enforcement arm where officers will actively enforce traffic laws within Marietta.
