Police: Enjoy the Holiday Weekend, But Safely

Published : Wednesday, August 28, 2019 | 12:07 PM

Pasadena Police are all in favor of you enjoying a great Labor Day holiday weekend. But they also want you to get through it safe and sound.

So the Department will be conducting a Traffic Enforcement program on Friday, August 30, throughout the City of Pasadena, just to keep drivers on their toes and mindful that even a fun weekend needs safe driving practices.

Officers will be deployed at various locations throughout the city to look for violations including, but not limited to, primary collision factors involving speed, red signals, and right of way violations.

When violations are observed, motorists will be cited and/or educated on the safety concerns associated with the violation.

“Community input and engagement regarding traffic safety is welcome and encouraged, so please feel free to get in touch with us regarding problem locations,” said Traffic Section Lieutenant Mark Goodman. “We regularly use suggestions from our community members along with analytics to form our deployment strategies,” said Goodman.

The Pasadena Police Department’s ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public while at the same time reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions. Lieutenant Goodman can be reached via e-mail at mgoodman@cityofpasadena.net.

Funding for these programs is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
