Police wrote 119 tickets to drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians during a safety enforcement crackdown last week, officials said.

The operation targeted traffic violations that jeopardize pedestrian and bicyclists, according to the Pasadena Police Department. It was held from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 31.

Sixty-four drivers, 28 bicyclists and 27 pedestrians received citations.

“We are in an unprecedented time, but even during a pandemic, the safety of road users remains a top priority,” Pasadena police Lt. Max Dahlstein said. “We hope this operation serves as a reminder to everyone to practice safe biking, driving and walking behaviors when they are out.”

Another pedestrian and bicycle safety enforcement operation was scheduled for Friday, police said.

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