The primary responsibility of the department’s Traffic Safety Unit and Motor Unit is to identify high crash rate zones within the City of Asheville. Once these areas are identified the unit breaks down the data and determines and implements an approach to reducing the number of crashes within that area.


This could include working with outside agencies such as the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and the City of Asheville’s Traffic Engineering Department to provide better environmental design of the identified area. More often though, crash rates are reduced through aggressive enforcement of existing motor vehicle laws.
