Pasadena police plan traffic enforcement campaigns Monday

PASADENA — Pasadena police will be out in force enforcing traffic laws Monday, focusing speeding in the morning, then shifting their focus to red light violations in the afternoon, officials said.
Officers will take part in a speed enforcement campaign during the morning hours, beginning at 6 a.m., Pasadena police Lt. Pete Hettema said in a written statement.
“Speeding is the third highest cause of traffic deaths and the number one cause of serious injuries on California roadways,” Hettema said.
Police will focus on citing red light runners from noon to 4 p.m., Hettema said.
“The ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public, at the same time reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions,” the lieutenant said.
Funding for both campaigns is being provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National highway Traffic Safety Administration.
