During the holidays, the number of travelers on our roadways and sidewalks peak as friends and families come together to celebrate. The holidays are known for spreading happiness and joy, but they are also known for being the season with the highest number of traffic related incidents.
For a three month period this winter (Tuesday, December 6, 2016 through Monday, March 6, 2017), The Town of Framingham in conjunction with the Framingham Police Department, Framingham Fire Department and the Framingham Department of Public Works is launching #HeadsUpFramingham. #HeadsUpFramingham is a public safety awareness campaign designed to inform our residents, businesses and those that travel through Framingham of strategies to navigate safely through Framingham; whether on foot, in a vehicle or on wheels.
The #HeadsUpFramingham public safety awareness campaign spotlights unsafe behavior by reminding drivers, pedestrians and cyclists to obey the rules of the road in order to keep themselves and others safe. This public safety awareness campaign is combined with increased traffic patrols to proactively fight distracted behaviors.
