Concord, CA—Concord Police Department will conduct a traffic enforcement operation intended to educate drivers and pedestrians on traffic laws meant to keep them safe on the road.
On Wed., Oct. 30, 2019, officers will look for violations made by drivers that are illegal and dangerous. Special attention will be directed toward drivers speeding, red light violations, distracted driving, making illegal turns, not stopping for signs and signals or any other traffic violation. The operation will take place between 5 and 9 p.m.
The Concord Police Department often analyzes accident data to identify locations and violations that cause those accidents. Extra officers will be on duty patrolling the areas where traffic congestion and collisions occur. The goal of this enforcement operation is to decrease traffic related injuries and deaths, while encouraging safe driving.
Concord Police Department supports the new OTS public awareness campaign, “Go Safely, California,” a resource for Californians on how to be safe on the go. To find out more about the campaign, visit gosafelyca.org.
Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
