You may have thought you saw more police cars along Moorland Road in the last month. It wasn't your imagination. Based on several e-mails and phone calls from concerned citizens, the New Berlin Police Department has been stepping up its enforcement of traffic violations along heavily traveled Moorland Road. We are targeting all types of violations along Moorland Road, but have focused mainly on the busier intersections, where drivers have not been stopping for red and yellow lights, and have been making illegal u-turns. In the last month alone, this increased enforcement has led to violators receiving 18 tickets and 34 warnings. This is over and above the regular traffic enforcement on New Berlin's busiest roadway. The department plans to continue this increased presence over the summer months, when dry roads generally lead to increased speeds. These increased speeds through busy intersections lead to the more serious accidents, usually involving injuries and even fatalities. Please drive safely and don't forget to buckle up!
