Police Crack Down to Prevent Accidents

During 2017, Glynn County Police responded to over 2,200 traffic accidents that resulted in 18 fatalities and many injuries. Unfortunately, Glynn led the coastal area of Georgia in traffic fatalities for 2017. Glynn also faces an increasing problem with unsecured litter and debris being blown out of vehicles. Chief John Powell has taken a zero tolerance stance during the month of April on enforcement of traffic offenses and litter control. Officers will be out in force looking for violations including driving under the influence, speeding, distracted driving, following too closely, and running red lights and stop signs. Officers will also be looking for those who throw litter from vehicles and fail to secure loads they are hauling. All residents and visitors to Glynn are encouraged to do their part by driving safely and keeping their litter secured.
