Over the past four years we have seen a significant improvement in traffic safety in Champlin. The Champlin Police Department devoted additional resources to traffic enforcement in 2008. The Department conducts enforcement toward the goal of improving traffic safety. In 2011 the Champlin City Council affirmed its support for traffic safety efforts. The Department has compiled its 2012 statistics and is now able to provide the following data about crashes and injuries on our roads:
The Department believes that diligent enforcement improves driving behavior and thereby reduces crashes. The 2012 Champlin City Survey was conducted by Decision Resources Ltd. and presented to the City at the January 28th City Council Meeting. The survey indicated a high public awareness of the City’s traffic enforcement efforts. The Department believes this awareness has contributed to safer roads. We wish to commend the drivers in our community for helping to keep our roads safe.
