Prince William County Police Department

Traffic Safety Information

​Traffic safety is the responsibility of everyone using streets and roadways: pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and vehicle operators. We feature current traffic-safety initiatives, educate residents on traffic safety, and provide resources that you can use and share with others.

The Prince William County Police Department takes part in several regional traffic safety campaigns throughout the year, in addition to our routine traffic enforcement efforts. These campaigns center on specific enforcement of laws enacted to save lives. With each campaign, the Department issues a news release announcing the campaign dates and the goal the campaign is seeking to achieve. Social media posts are then completed throughout the campaign to continue the educational element for the public.

In addition to these campaigns, the Police Department also holds specific County-related traffic safety efforts around the beginning of each school year in school zones to educate drivers that school is back in session and to take necessary enforcement action for the safety of students. With regard to DUI safety, the Police Department also announces DUI related checkpoints in advance in an effort to deter drunk driving by encouraging sober driving or having a designated driver. Around the holidays throughout the year, the Department partners with and shares information on regional programs options such as the Washington Regional Alcohol Program's SoberRide.
