Speed enforcement in Ridgefield is being stepped up by Police. The Ridgefield Police Department is working with the State Department of Transportation to increase radar enforcement throughout the town.
The goal is to slow motorists down and prevent accidents.
Ridgefield has received a highway safety grant for rural road speed enforcement. Officers will be performing additional radar details throughout town during July and August, with the effort having been started on Friday. The increased enforcement will focus on roadways that present a high risk based on crash data. There will be no cost to the town for this increased detail because the grant will reimburse all expenditures by the police department.
