Leesburg, VA (August 21, 2023) – The Leesburg Police Department will be conducting its annual “Back-to-School Traffic Safety Blitz” to coincide with the start of the 2023-2024 school year.  The blitz consists of a traffic enforcement campaign that targets school zones.  Electronic message boards will be deployed at different locations throughout the Town of Leesburg to reinforce safe driving behaviors, to remind motorists that schools are back in session, and to remind motorists to watch for children.

The multi-week high visibility enforcement campaign will be conducted by the Leesburg Police Department with assistance from the Virginia State Police beginning on August 24th, with the objective of reducing the number of traffic crashes occurring in and around schools.  Specific emphasis will be placed on speeding, aggressive driving, distracted driving, stop light & stop sign violations, seat belt & child safety seat usage, as well as pedestrian violations.

During the remainder of the school year, the department will target school zone areas based on statistical analysis with a goal of achieving a reduction in both personal injury and property damage crashes.  Pedestrian and motorist safety is paramount to the Leesburg Police Department and can only be attained with the cooperation of community members.

Learn more about LPD’s Back-to-School Traffic Safety Blitz during this Friday’s “Live in Leesburg”, which can be viewed live on the Town of Leesburg, Virginia’s Facebook page at 11:30 A.M.
