Traffic Crash Reduction Initiative in eleven specific areas
In addition to considerable financial expenses, traffic
crashes can result in injury, property damage, and death.
Between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009, Lufkin Police
Department Officers investigated 2,213 reported traffic
crashes that occurred within the city limits of Lufkin.
Those crashes resulted in the deaths of 6 persons, 20
persons reporting incapacitating injuries, 169 persons
reporting non-incapacitating injuries, and 339 persons
reporting possible injuries. The goal of the Traffic Crash
Reduction Initiative is to increase public awareness of
traffic laws and dangerous driving behaviors and to reduce
the number of crashes and injuries.
The first eleven target areas were chosen for selected enforcement
following a survey of traffic crashes occurring during 2009.
The target areas have a high concentration of traffic and
accounted for approximately 1,000 of the 2,213 total traffic
crashes that occurred during the surveyed period.

and put into production on February 07, 2011 on the North and
South bound lanes of loop 287 and Lotus Lane.
Lufkin Police Department strongly supports the Relay for Life in the
