The Traffic Committee is an advisory committee and makes recommendations to the Board of Selectmen for implementation. It considers all aspects of traffic and safety issues which are brought to the Committee's attention from citizens as well as Town Departments. For many years it consisted of representatives of the Police Department, Fire Department, Department of Public Works (DPW), Parking Clerk, Planning Board, and Light Department. In 1997, the committee was reorganized to include three citizen representatives, appointed for three year terms, plus the Police Chief (Chairman), Fire Chief, Town Planner and DPW Superintendent.

The Traffic Committee exists to assist Hingham residents and business owners with ways to alleviate traffic concerns in all areas of the Town. The Traffic Committee does not have the power to implement changes but rather recommends proposals to the Board of Selectmen.

Should a resident or merchant have a topic to bring before the Traffic Committee, they should make a written request to the Board of Selectmen and carbon copy the Chief Glenn Olsson, Hingham Police Department.

Questions regarding traffic issues can by addressed by Sgt. David Horte, Traffic Sergeant, Hingham Police Department, at 781-749-1212.
