Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-Below is our original post about the Sheriff starting road patrols and traffic enforcement in Century Village East after forty-two years of it being not patrolled as it is private property. We understand that most in the city feel traffic enforcement is lacking all across town. According to the CVE Reporter, Master Management is stepping up enforcement by paying BSO for extra Deputies. Now that said that would imply there are Deputies now making road patrol and traffic enforcement. Deerfield-News.com has not seen that activity recently anywhere in Century Village. We all have seen the number of accidents and deaths in Deerfield Beach. Deerfield Beach roads some more than others appear to call into question the lack of traffic enforcement in the city.
The story below was posted in March of 2018. Shortly after BSO began patrols we did notice them, after a story calling the patrols BS as they were not happening. Once again we call BS, on BSO patrolling, we have not seen any at different places and times in Century Village. Now I personally have not seen them in some time making traffic stops and enforcing speed limits. Deerfield-News.com has written to BSO and requested the public records pertaining to traffic enforcement in Century Village East 2019. We will be doing several follow up posts on traffic enforcement or the lack of them inside CVE and Deerfield Beach.
Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-The cities largest and maybe the most dangerous of all developments to drive in will finally be getting police enforcement of traffic laws. Century Village East home of 8500 condominium units is private property and a gated community, from its inception in 1976 the Deerfield Beach Police and subsequently BSO never could make traffic enforcement patrols. Aside from what I remember the Villages residents had never requested it.
Apparently now they have and have to bring all of the signage and crosswalks and other roadworks to the statutory requirements so BSO can patrol. Which explains why in the last several month’s extensive signage and crosswalks and walking paths have been installed. All of which including the change in the proper height of the street signs hopefully will help and save accidents and injuries from happening.!
The residents of CVE many of whom are elderly and some of whom should not be driving at all cause its share of unique driving challenges. The fact that there will finally be the authority for the authorities to enforce the traffic laws of Florida is a good thing for all!
From BSO about our Public Records Request.
Also, there aren’t any documents related to the Century Village enforcement. Our duty is to enforce the applicable traffic laws once signage is in place and other criteria is met.
I hope this helps,
Public Information Officer
