The approach used to deliver this level of service includes THE THREE E’s, which are Enforcement, Education and Engineering.   The ultimate goal of the Traffic Unit is to fulfill the Department’s Mission Statement by creating a safe environment and to work together with the community to reduce traffic-related injuries.

The Traffic Unit Officers have had extensive training in accident reconstruction, they are certified Accident Reconstruction Specialists. They also handle parking enforcement including RV’s, abandon vehicles and vehicles parked illegally. The Traffic Unit oversees special events and parades in the town.

Compute Your Estimated Blood/Breath Alcohol Concentration (BAC)

The Drink Wheel — online BAC Calculator from Intoximeters, Inc.

A person’s actual BAC is dependent on many complex factors, including their physical condition (body composition, health etc…) and what they have recently ingested (including food, water, medications and other drugs).

The results that are generated are rough estimates of an average healthy person’s BAC assuming typical beverage sizes, recipes and alcohol content. The BAC estimates generated by the Drink Wheel should not be used to infer anyone’s fitness to work, drive or perform any other task or duty.
