APD Traffic Safety Unit spotlights high-crash areas

From the City of Asheville’s YouTube channel: Officers with the Asheville Police Department’s Traffic Safety Unit talk about Crash Reduction Areas, an effort that focuses attention on areas with high rates of vehicle accidents. New Leicester Highway, Fairview Road and Patton Avenue all rose to the top of the list in the last year based on accident numbers. As with any street or corridor, it is important in these zones to be aware of other drivers and pedestrians, maintain a safe distance and speed limit, and yield the right of way for other motorists.
