GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro Police said their campaign to reduce traffic crashes and to make Wendover Avenue safer resulted in fewer occupant injuries.
The eight-week 'Zero Tolerance' campaign began after officers analyzed crash data in the area. Captain John Wolfe said Wendover Avenue has been the site of more than 800 crashes where six people died.
Wolfe said the contributing factors to accidents in the area were speeding, following too close, careless operation, and failure to obey traffic control devices.
Even though there was a small increase in the number of crashes on Wendover Avenue during the campaign, police say they are glad the severity of the crashes declined.
Greensboro Police said they are evaluating other areas for their next campaign.
