  • The Mount Vernon Police Station of the Fairfax County Police Department are working with the Board of Supervisors in partnership to promote safe driving through a joint-campaign called “Campaign Against Aggressive Driving” or CAAD, to reduce summer-time related aggressive driving in the Mount Vernon District. They are encouraging motorist who travel the Richmond Highway Corridor to practice safe-driving behavior during this time. In addition, to practicing safe-driving, we are asking that residents report any aggressive or unsafe behavior to FCPDMTVtraffic@fairfaxcounty.gov, as the Mount Vernon Police Station will be issuing “Friendly Reminder” notices to those who are reported for aggressive driving.  The aim of this outreach campaign is to decrease speeding, reduce pedestrian and vehicular accidents, and help to remind drivers of the importance of safe driving.
