Officers assigned to the Pasadena Police Department Traffic Section issued a total of 107 citations, 85 of which were for dangerous driving, during a bicycle and pedestrian safety traffic enforcement program throughout the City of Pasadena last Friday, May 24.

The officers also found three motorists driving without a valid driver’s license, and cited 17 pedestrians and five bicyclists for violations.

Officers were looking out for dangerous driving behaviors during the enforcement activity, including speeding, red light violations, right of way violations, and other violations that lead to traffic collisions, a police department statement said.

They were also on the lookout for bicyclists and pedestrians who fail to follow road rules, which could lead to accidents and injury collisions.

“Many people in Pasadena walk or use a bicycle as a primary means of transportation. As always, a majority of our enforcement efforts today focused on locations suggested to us by community members,” Traffic Section Lieutenant Mark Goodman said. “Community engagement related to these operations really assist us in working on locations where traffic safety is a concern.”

Funding for the traffic enforcement program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
