SCPD Traffic Section Works Hard To Make Your Roads Safer

SCPD Traffic Section patrolled in a multi-agency operation this week to target unsafe drivers and cyclists.
In one shift alone, 125 citations were issued for a variety of infractions. The top 3 cites were; cars speeding, cyclists running through stop sign & red lights, and drivers running stop signs.

The entire operation was conducted in an area heavily populated by pedestrians.  This enforcement effort also had a side benefit through an awareness and education for those commuting through neighborhood and school pathways.
This little guy gave our SCPD Traffic Sgt. the best Hi-Five of the day! 
SCPD Traffic Section were partnered with UCSC PD, Capitola PD and CHP Santa Cruz during this targeted traffic enforcement.
