From the Town Marshal
Posted on Jan 12th, 2017

This will come as no surprise to anyone who regularly travels through Winfield. The total number of traffic crashes in town for 2016 was 107, with 53 of them occurring on 109th Avenue. The rest were on Randolph (24), 117th Avenue (7), followed by a variety of other roads. The primary cause of crashes was Following Too Closely (21), failing to yield (15), and objects in the roadway (13). The crashes resulted in 16 injuries and one fatality. I share this to bring awareness and to educate everyone. Until the town gets the funding to widen 109th Ave. this will continue to be an issue. The best thing that drivers can do is to not be distracted and pay attention while driving. And please, don't forget to slow down during inclement weather.
