With school opening on Tuesday, the City of Chelsea has launched a traffic calming and safety campaign. The goal of the campaign is to change driver behavior to improve safety, specifically:

1) Stops:  coming to a full stop at stop signs.

2) Signals: using turn signals properly.

3) Speeds: obeying traffic speeds.

To reinforce safe driving, biking and pedestrian safety, the Chelsea Police Department will have directed patrols at or near school buildings and other key intersections during the first week of September.

Also, keep an eye out on Channel 18 (local public access) and here for Public Service Announcements (PSAs) with safety tips and reminders.

Also in September, the city will be installing pedestrian cross islands at various locations in town to enhance walkability and to further reduce speeds.
