Highway Safety Issues Survey

Everyone has concerns and issues with highway safety in Prince George's County. Now is your time to give the right people your feedback so the problems can be addressed.

With support from the Maryland Department of Transportation's State Highway Administration and the Maryland Highway Safety Office, the Department of Public and Community Health of The University of Maryland has developed the “Monitoring the Future of Maryland: A Survey of Highway Safety Issues.” The purpose of this survey is to collect public opinions on county residents’ opinions of local enforcement efforts directed to impaired and aggressive drivers, knowledge of various traffic safety laws, and commuting distances.It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete the survey and it is confidential. Your participation in the survey will be valuable in providing the state and local highway safety directors with information on how to better direct limited highway safety funding to the state and local governments.

Please take the time to complete the highway safety issues survey that can be found here: http://www.marylanddriversurvey.com/.

Crime Maps Now Online

Thanks to the intrepid efforts of Mt. Rainier resident Mike Taylor, our monthly crime maps are now available online. Mike volunteered his free time and spent several months creating these visual representations of our crime statistics. I cannot thank him enough for all the hard work he put into the project. Crime maps are available from January 2006 through June 2007. Please note that the maps and other data are hosted on Mike's free Geocities account which has an hourly bandwidth limitation. If you get a message that the account has exceeded its limit, please try back after a few hours.

You can see the fruits of Mike's labor by clicking on the below link. You may also want to bookmark the page for future reference.
