Police Mount Extra Traffic Enforcement Patrols Today

Published : Friday, June 21, 2019 | 1:00 AM

The Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a Traffic Enforcement program on Friday, June 21 throughout the City of Pasadena.

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.

The need for driver education and enforcement is ongoing due to traffic volumes within the City of Pasadena, police said.

“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 use suggestions from our community along with analytics to form our deployment strategies,” said Goodman. “Thanks to everyone who called or sent e-mails to me with location suggestions. We will be adding them to our list for extra enforcement.”

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.

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