“SOS” at Glebe and Carlin Springs

A police Special Operations Section, the motor section, yesterday began to patrol the intersection of N. Glebe and N. Carlin Springs roads looking to cite speeders and drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk, said Lt. William Griffith of the Arlington County Police.

This special detail came about as a consequence of a recent meeting between citizens and county staff regarding the state of pedestrian life at that corner.
“[The] next couple of days, should see more [officers] there” at the intersection, Lt. Griffith said.

The officers on the special detail are different from ones who normally patrol the neighborhood.

Officers on the special detail keep a tally of citations made at the intersection and hand them up to supervisors. Officers who normally patrol the area are also allowed to take part in the tally.

“At the end of 30 days, we see what we get,” said Lt. Griffith. He said he should see the tally sheets about mid-August.
