The Pasadena Police Department will conduct special traffic enforcement programs throughout the community Monday, March 28.
From 6 a.m. to 1 noon, officers will be on the lookout for drivers who talk on cell phones without hands-free devices and those who text while driving; from noon to 6 p.m., officers will conduct traffic enforcement at intersections with historically high collision rates due to drivers who run red lights or drive aggressively.
“We are committed to reducing the number of traffic collisions resulting from distracted drivers as well as those who run red lights and drive aggressively through intersections,” said Chief of Police Phillip Sanchez. “The ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public while reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions.”
Funding for the programs was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
