Police caution motorists on Central Avenue to slow down and yield to pedestrians at crosswalks. After receiving complaints, police placed a speed monitoring device on Central to remind drivers to watch their speed.Members of the Los Alamos Police and Los Alamos County Traffic Control are planning to meet to work together on the issue.“We look forward to working with the traffic division to address citizen complaints,” Det. Doug Johnson said. Engineering Assistant Alipio Mondragon of the County Traffic Division discussed the situation during an interview this morning. “We plan to meet with police next week,” he said. “We’re going to get together to share what we know with each other and determine how to move forward from there.”Johnson said driving within the speed limit and yielding to pedestrians will become increasingly important as the holidays grow near. “We expect to see more downtown pedestrian traffic as people begin their shopping and it's really important for drivers to adhere to traffic laws,” he said.New Mexico has one of the highest pedestrian fatality rates in the nation, driven mostly by alcohol-involved fatalities, according to the New Mexico Comprehensive Transportation Safety Plan (CTSP).
