In response to increased calls from citizens regarding traffic violations in school zones, Apache Junction Police Department traffic division has increased their enforcement efforts in the areas of Apache Junction High School (Ironwood Dr. and Southern Ave.) and Four Peaks Elementary School (Idaho Rd. and Tepee Street).
To increase the effectiveness of their concentrated enforcement measures, officers are utilizing unmarked vehicles to conduct traffic stops. The safety of citizens, especially our kids, is a high priority; therefore, drivers can expect to see more police presence in school zones.
In addition to speeding violations, officers will be looking for parking violations in the 1700 block of North Idaho Rd. and the 3700 block of East Broadway Rd.
