TURLOCK - The Turlock Police Department Traffic Safety Unit has created a Facebook page to be used as a channel of communication with the public. The title of the page is “Turlock Police Traffic Safety Unit.”
There will be several updates a week with helpful traffic safety tips, such as turning on your headlights when it is raining. Also, locations with high collision rates and high violation rates will be listed. The page will inform the public as to special enforcement locations as well as violations the Traffic Safety Unit will be focusing on.
The mission of the Traffic Safety Unit is to reduce collision related injuries and deaths. In 2009, Californians spent an amazing $24,000,000,000 on vehicle collisions. This Facebook page will be used a way of providing instant and accessible education to the public.
