TRAFFIC SAFETY 

Traffic Enforcement involves a proactive approach to enforcing the traffic laws of the State of Colorado on local and state roadways. This includes commercial vehicle enforcement, speed enforcement, driving under the influence enforcement, and other violations of the law. 

Utilizing both marked and unmarked patrol vehicles, the Silt Police Department places a high priority on enforcement of traffic laws. Patrol vehicles are equipped with Radar and Accutrak devices for use in speed enforcement.  Officers enforce traffic laws through the use of citations and warnings.  Driving Under the Influence incidents continue to rise each year and officers remain vigilant in the enforcement of the DUI law.  Colorado case law on DUI cases changes frequently and our officers continue to keep pace with the changes in order to prosecute this crime effectively and within constitutional boundaries.
