CITYWIDE TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT EFFORTS

Berkeley, California (Thursday, February 21, 2019) - Officer writing a ticket

Over the next month, members of the Berkeley Police Department will be conducting increased traffic enforcement throughout the city.  Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers that put the community at risk.  These violations include drivers speeding, making illegal turns, failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and failing to stop for signs/signals.  In addition to this enforcement, officers will also be looking for impaired and/or distracted drivers.

Since the beginning of the year, there have been over 45 collisions throughout the city where people have been injured.

Our hope is that this increased enforcement will make our community and roadways safer. 

Funding for this enforcement is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety and the City of Berkeley.
