Allied Agency Traffic Enforcement rescheduled due to rain

UPDATE: Due to anticipated rain tomorrow, our Allied Agency Traffic Enforcement Operation has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 29, 2017.

The Los Altos Police Department is partnering with other allied law enforcement agencies in Santa Clara County to conduct high visibility traffic enforcement operations. These efforts rotate through various cities in the County so each participating agency receives the benefit of increased traffic enforcement operations.

The Los Altos Police Department is hosting this operation in Los Altos on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

The purpose of this allied agency enforcement effort is to reduce pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle collisions through education and enforcement of traffic laws. Officers will be divided into 6 teams (including 2 pedestrian decoy teams) that will conduct high visibility enforcement along the San Antonio Road and Foothill Expressway corridors and in several school zones.

Enforcement will focus on pedestrian and bicycle violations as well as unsafe speed. Officers will also be looking for other violations including jaywalking, bicycle lane and pedestrian right-of-way violations, red light/stop sign violations, speeding in school zones, distracted driving, mobile phone violations as well as any other dangerous violations that may occur.

Please be sure to walk, bike and drive safe.
