Sheriff's Office and Community Leaders Remind Motorists, Pedestrians and Cyclists to Share the Road

Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman, county leaders and community advocates will join together this morning to announce the Street Smart pedestrian and bicycle safety campaign. Sheriff Chapman will be reminding motorists to obey traffic safety laws whether you are a pedestrian, cyclist or driver.

To curb pedestrian or cyclist injuries and fatalities in the region, Street Smart will kick off its fall safety campaign this morning at the intersection of Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) and the W&OD Trail in Ashburn. Residents will be reminded to remain alert, share the road and obey traffic laws.

As part of the campaign, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement in the Metropolitan region will be out in force through November 25, ticketing motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists who don’t follow area traffic safety laws.

This morning's press conference will be held at 11 a.m. at the intersection of Belmont Ridge Road (Route 659) and the Washington and Old Dominion Trail.
