About the Unit:

The Fairfield Police Department is committed to making the streets of Fairfield safe for all people who travel on our roads every day by combating distracted driving as well as all other traffic violations.  The Fairfield Police Department continually educates the public through public relation articles, community programs, and specialized courses held at the police department.  The Traffic Enforcement Unit was created in 2004 and acts on complaints from residents and conducts a variety of traffic studies throughout town. The goal of this unit is to reduce accidents, increase the safety of our roads, increase driver compliance with motor vehicle laws and answer citizen complaints.


Traffic Enforcement Requests:

Citizens who would like to request traffic enforcement in their neighborhood may submit a request through the Town of Fairfield's Citizen Service Request System . The Traffic Enforcement Unit will review the request and determine the best action to take to meet your concerns.  In addition, you may review activity taken on your request at any time by logging into the system.

Traffic Calming Initiatives and Requests:

Interested in requesting a traffic change in your neighborhood including signs, markings or traffic pattern changes?  Please download the Traffic Survey Request & Petition for more information.

The first step in the process is to identify a problem or concern. Once a problem is identified it is important to seek the input of the residents affected in order to find a solution which has the support of the neighborhood.

Please also check standards and guidelines, especially if your request represents a significant change to the flow of traffic or street design.  Signs & signals must meet specific guidelines as published in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) at http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov
