Chapel Hill Police Travel-Safety Initiatives


The safety of everyone who travels is a shared responsibility.

The Chapel Hill Police Department and area partners will continue speed enforcement and Watch For Me N.C. initiatives—in addition to normal operations—throughout the month of February. These initiatives are an effort to continue to preserve and enhance a safe community in which to travel, whether on two wheels, four wheels, two feet, or other methods.

Officers may issue information, warnings or citations to anyone for violating laws. Fines and court costs for these violations begin at $213.

Multiple officers will monitor the following areas (in addition to normal Chapel Hill Police patrol practices) to encourage and enforce safe behavior from everyone:

  • Feb. 6, 12 noon – 2 p.m., Tuesday, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard near Homestead Road
  • Tuesday, Feb. 13, 6:30-8:30 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., Raleigh Road near Greenwood Road
  • Feb. 20, 10 am. – 12 noon, Tuesday, US Highway 15-501 near Kingsmill Road
  • Feb. 27, 8-9 a.m. Tuesday,  South Columbia Street

Watch For Me N.C. is a statewide safety initiative designed to improve relationships on roads between people who drive, people who walk, people who roll and people who bike. People may receive helpful information, warnings, and in some cases, tickets for violations during these initiatives.
