OCEAN CITY, MD – (May 1, 2018): After receiving complaints from residents, Ocean City police recently conducted traffic details in the Montego Bay and Caine Woods neighborhoods to address speeding and other traffic violations. On several dates in the month of April, officers focused on the side streets where residents are affected by traffic issues the most – near their homes. Officers made several traffic stops resulting in citations and warnings.
“The quality of life of our residents is directly affected by what occurs on their street,” commented Captain Mike Colbert, Commander of the Ocean City Police Department Patrol Division. “By enforcing traffic on our residential streets, we can slow drivers down and make the neighborhoods safer for everyone.”
Citizens are reminded to follow speed limits on all city streets and drive safely, particularly in residential neighborhoods. Most residential streets in Ocean City have a speed limit of 25 mph. Officers will continue to conduct traffic details to encourage drivers to follow the posted speed limits.
