Reminder - APD uses video to record parking violations near schools! Tickets mailed to violator.

At least twice daily, several hundred automobiles converge on each of our City schools to deliver and pick up students. Severe traffic congestion from illegally stopped vehicles and other violations place our children in an unsafe environment. Traffic problems near schools are not unique to the City of Arcadia. Like towns throughout the San Gabriel Valley, the Arcadia Police Department receives many requests each school year to increase police patrols, increase enforcement and to assist in making changes to improve the safety of the students. Many problems can be solved through education of the students and parents, traditional traffic enforcement and through engineering changes. However, when certain violations continue despite these efforts, law enforcement officers will turn to non-traditional methods to help curb the problem.

In January of 2006, the Arcadia Police Department began using video cameras to record vehicular violations near our schools, as they occur. Traffic Officers later process the video and mail citations to the registered owner of the violator vehicle. Increased compliance with these types of traffic laws will significantly improve the safety of our children.

Here are a few things to remember:

DO NOT double-park
DO NOT drop off or pick up a passenger while stopped in traffic
DO NOT stop in red or no parking zones
DO NOT be part of the problem

DO drive safely!
DO be part of the solution!
