Published on Monday, March 1, 2021 | 2:35 pm

Pasadena police issued 138 tickets Friday during a citywide extra enforcement operation targeting traffic violations that endanger the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians, officials said.

The campaign took place between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., police said in a written statement.

Eighty-eight of the citations went to drivers for offenses including speeding, failing to yield to pedestrians, illegal-turns and running stop signs, police said.

Police cited 33 pedestrians for offenses such as jaywalking, crossing the street against a red late or delaying traffic, officials said.

Seventeen bicyclists received tickets for infractions including riding against traffic, biking on sidewalks, failing to stop for signs and riding through red lights, according to the department.

“We hope this operation serves as a reminder to everyone to practice safe biking, driving and walking behaviors when they are out,” Pasadena police Cmdr. Mark Goodman said.

Funding for Friday’s campaign was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
