Officers Looking for Dangerous Drivers This Friday, February 15

PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena Police Department will conduct a traffic enforcement detail throughout the city on Friday, February 15. Officers will be on the lookout for dangerous driving behaviors, including speeding, red light and right-of-way violations, and other violations that lead to traffic collisions.

When violations are observed, drivers will be cited and/or educated on the safety concerns associated with the violations. The need for driver education and enforcement is constantly on the rise due to traffic volume within the city of Pasadena.

“We welcome community input and engagement regarding traffic safety. 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 deploy our resources wisely. This applies all the time, not just on days we are doing special programs,” said Lt. Goodman. “Our resources are limited, but we are always looking for ways to enhance our service.”

Pasadena Police Department’s ultimate goal is to educate the driving public and reduce serious injuries and fatal collisions. Lt. Goodman can be reached via e-mail at mgoodman@cityofpasadena.net.

Funding for this and other traffic enforcement programs is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
