Traffic Enforcement Program Planned for June 21

PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a traffic enforcement program throughout the city on Friday, June 21. Officers will be deployed at various locations looking for violations including, but not limited to, primary collision factors involving speed, red light and right-of-way violations. When violations are observed, motorists will be cited and/or educated on the safety concerns associated with the violation.

“Community input and engagement regarding traffic safety is welcome and encouraged, so please feel free to get in touch with us regarding problem locations,” said Traffic Section Lieutenant Mark Goodman. “We use analytics and suggestions from our community to form our deployment strategies,” said Lt. Goodman. “We appreciate everyone's calls and emails with location suggestions. We will add them to our list for extra enforcement.” Lt. Goodman can be reached via email at mgoodman@cityofpasadena.net.

The need for driver education and enforcement is ongoing due to traffic volumes within the city of Pasadena. The police department's ultimate goal is to enforce traffic laws and educate the driving public while reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions.

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.
