Read Time:1 Minute, 0 Second

The South Pasadena Police Department will increase patrols throughout the community and introduce other traffic safety programs to reduce serious injuries and deaths on the roads.

“This grant allows us to support our traffic safety efforts in the community,” said Lt. Shannon Robledo. “Our intention is to stop illegal and dangerous behavior that puts people at risk, while creating an environment where everyone feels safe when they travel.”

The grant will provide additional programs and resources, including:

• Checkpoints and patrols aimed at stopping suspected impaired drivers.

• High visibility distracted driving. Operations targeting drivers who violate California’s hands-free cell phone law.

• Law enforcement actions focus on the most dangerous driver behaviors that endanger the safety of people who ride bicycles or walk.

• Enforcement operations focus on the primary violations that cause crashes: speeding, failure to yield, running a stop sign and/or running a red light, and making an improper turn or lane change.

• Community presentations on road safety issues such as distracted driving, impaired driving, speeding, bicycle and pedestrian safety.

• Collaborative enforcement efforts with neighboring agencies.

• Staff training and/or recertification: Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST), Advanced Roadside Driving Inspection (ARIDE) and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).
