    This morning I heard from the fellow slug that many cars were vandalized and wheels were stolen from the horner road park & ride lot? Is it safe to continue slugging from horner road?

    Hi Tina,
    Nothing changed in slugging, I guess your question is it safe to park at Horner Rd. Commuter lot. Below is the response from Prince William County Police Department on their FB page.

    “Prince William County Police Department: We are actively patrolling the commuter lot daily with conventional and unconventional methods as calls for service allow, but we are unable to discuss further for investigative purposes. Unfortunately, there are times that officers are required for other higher priority calls and are not able to be in the commuter lots at all times. During these times, it is vital for any citizen who sees any suspicious activity to immediately call the non-emergency number at 703-792-6500. Detectives with the Property Crimes Unit and patrol officers are working diligently to identify and arrest the suspects involved in this continuing problem.”

    Hi Tina,

    I sent an email to Corey Stewart (the Chairman of the PWC board of County Supervisors) and Frank Principi. Mr. Prinicipi sent the below. I am going to try to go the town hall on the q4th of April. Honestly, I will not park at Horner Road because of the theft. I will only park at Potomac Mills. At Potomac there are cameras and the mall has security that patrols the lot. I can also slug home to Horner and then for like a $1 take the bust to Potomac, but I know my car will be safe.

    HERE IS THE EMAIL ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON FROM THE COUNTY AND COPS:

    Good Morning Ms. Reed,

    Thank you for your e-mail. I too am very concerned about the recent events at Horner Road and just last week had a conversation with Captain Vago of the PWCPD Eastern District to ask him what the Police Department is doing to stem the rash of thefts. There are several immediate steps that he’s taken, including installing pole cameras at the entry and exit to the lot; however, those cameras have a limited capture window. To that end, he is working to assign a motorcycle unit to the lot.

    As you may be aware, these lots are owned and operated by VDOT. To date they have not been a helpful partner in the management and oversight of commuter lots. Senator McPike submitted a bill during the recently-ended General Assembly session that would have required VDOT to install cameras at all commuter lots; however, that specific component of the bill did not pass. Nonetheless, Senator McPike continues to be a leader on this front and is working to schedule a community/town hall meeting with various stakeholders, including VDOT, Virginia State Police and PWC PD. The tentative date is Thrusday, April 14 at 8am in the Potomac Conference Room at the MCoart Building (1 County Complex Court, Woodbridge, VA). I’ll try to follow-up with you when the event is confirmed, but please don’t hestiate to reach out to Jared or Tanya on my staff, both of whom are Cc’d on this note, in the next week or so.

    I am very apperciative of your note and please know that many people are working digilently to try and stop these criminals. However, cooperation is key and so I remain hopeful that the right people will be motivated by the number of calls and e-mails that I and others are receiving to step-up and work with our PD to stem the illegal activitiy and return confidence to local and area commuters.

    Please do keep in touch and I hope to see you at the town hall meeting on the 14th.

    Good morning, I got an email yesterday from Senator McPike. The tentative Thursday April 14, 8AM meeting is NOT a townhall….BUT it will be a meeting of the VDOT, police, county supervisors and the senator to discuss that they are going to do about protecting the commuter lot. Hopefully we will hear something very soon.

    Is there a way to request to put a traffic light from the Intersection Horner Road to Telegraph Road?

    Hello D.C. commuters,

    I run a website called DCCommuteTimes.com, which provides commuter news, real-time transit information and entertainment content for the D.C. region. We write stories like a newspaper website and also pull together feeds to give updates on road/highway traffic, Metrorail, bus, and bicycle disruptions and issues.

    I’m writing a series about slugging, which will be posted in mid-July. With admin’s permission, I was hoping to solicit unusual or interesting slugging stories from you all. Most slugging participants follow the rules and etiquette. I’d like to see if there are any others that might entertain my readers.

    Thanks in advance and I hope to hear from you soon.

    Rhonda, Thanks a lot for sharing the information.

    For the past one year, tire theft was just at the old Horner road lot, but the last incident on March 31, 2016 was also on the new lot on the Telegraph Road. Hope the elected officials and Law enforcement come up with a comprehensive solution, before it spreads to other VDoT parking lots.
