BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Bronxville Police Chief Christopher Satriale announced Monday that his department issued 210 citations in the village in a single week.
Satriale said that police targeted specific areas in the village with the goal of stopping speeders , drivers using cell phones while driving and those driving while intoxicated.
"The officers worked in tandem and as special enforcement teams in primarily unmarked police cars," Satriale said. " Officers also used their time wisely to inform offending drivers of vehicle and traffic laws which the drivers may have previously disregarded."
Satriale said the initiative was in response to numerous complaints by residents who told police about drivers who were speeding or using cell phones in school zones or other highly traveled areas, like White Plains Road.
"While we continually monitor vehicle and traffic laws diligently throughout the year, this special detail has allowed us to concentrate efforts on specific problems in specific areas," said Satriale. "Ensuring public safety includes addressing quality of life issues and safety on our roadways will remain a top priority. Our department will utilize all available resources to maintain that safety for vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the village."
