The department’s Patrol Operations Division, whenever possible, works to identify high crash rate zones within the City of Asheville. 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.
