Meyer: Apache Junction needs better traffic-violation enforcement

Posted

Apache Junction drivers are becoming more reckless and are making driving in AJ more dangerous.

Since when does driving a jacked-up pickup make it OK to tailgate and try to push one to speed?

And drivers in other vehicles are doing it too.

When did it become legal to stop at a red light, look both ways and drive straight ahead through a red light?

Very few people stop at a red light to make a right turn. And pedestrians are walking into oncoming traffic, expecting the car to swerve around them.

Don't forget the countless unlicensed ATVs and mini bikes ridden by kids and adults on our streets.

I see these hazards multiple times a day in AJ. Thing is, I never see AJPD vehicles nearby and very seldom see them using radar to stop the speeding.

AJ definitely needs better traffic violation enforcement.
