Clean Car Campaign, are you a participant?

Clean Car Campaign, are you a participant?

ATLANTA – (Fourth Ward Alliance) Please take a moment to look at the newsletter from the February Public Safety meeting.  Note that 75 percent of crimes in Zone 5 (where we’re located) are due to Larceny from Auto incidents, which means that police officers spend a disproportionate amount of time responding to these incidents.  

Widespread participation in APD’s “Clean Car Campaign” (meaning, DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR VEHICLE!) will have the dual benefit of:

  • reducing crime statistics in our neighborhood 
  •  freeing up police officers to respond faster and more effectively to higher priority issues. 

So, please spread the word about the importance of the “Clean Car Campaign” to your friends, neighbors and guests – we’ll all benefit together!

Missing Reflectors Another Cost of Historic Snow Storm

Missing Reflectors Another Cost of Historic Snow Storm

ATLANTA -- The Georgia Department of Transportation and others are reflecting on yet another costly byproduct of last week's winter storm.

Along a three block stretch of Peachtree Street, 11Alive News found dozens of reflectors, broken and dislodged. The reflectors are commonly help motorists traveling at night, serving as a guide to separate lanes.

Plows and scrapers used to rid Metro Atlanta streets of snow and ice damaged and dislodged many of the reflectors.

Motorists like would like to see them replaced.

"Very important, especially at nighttime," said Monte Tucker. "I didn't really think to look that that would be an issue, but obviously it is."

The Georgia DOT says it's a costly yet common byproduct of a snow storm and the snow plows that follow. The agency says there are quite a few now missing from their spots on local streets, as well as Georgia interstates.

The Roads are Open; We Have Your Traffic Information at 11Alive.com

All the roads in Metro Atlanta are open today. You need to pack a huge load of patience while you get going though. There are many delays out there. For details on particular routes, check http://11alive.com/traffic.

ALL INTERSTATES & MAIN ROUTES are open.

The left lanes have ice in them. Stay out of those left lanes. Assume that all overpasses have ice on them; many have glaze ice that you will not be able to see until you are on them.

ALL of the on and off ramps have ice in them. Approach them slowly and carefully. If you speed onto an offramp or try to turn suddenly, you will slide and crash.

ARTERIAL/MAIN STREETS --

All have some ice on them. Most with three lanes ordinarily are down to two; most with two lanes regularly, are down to one lane.
