Love where you live!
LA MESA -- The crackdown on speeding continues unabated in La Mesa with the new total of those caught now up to 86. See Traffic Information below.
What do you have in your car right now? Your gym bag? Your briefcase? Your tool box? By leaving these valuables in your vehicle you risk having them stolen. During January and February of this year the value of one item stolen from an unlocked vehicle or during a vehicle burglary averaged $106. Frequently stolen items include purses, wallets, phone chargers, keys, tools, pharmaceuticals, CDs, clothing, cash, and other electronics. Whether at home or on the go, reduce your risk: take your valuables with you when you park your car.
This past weekend the La Mesa Police Department’s Traffic Unit conducted another speed enforcement operation, citing 86 drivers for speeding, impounding one car and one arrest for reckless driving. Statistically, speeding remains the number 1 injury traffic accident causing contributor in La Mesa. Officers determine and gauge whether someone is “speeding” or not by evaluating if they are driving too fast for the present conditions or not.
The La Mesa Police Department’s Traffic Unit will continue to conduct future speed and distracted driving enforcement operations throughout the year. The La Mesa Police Department is also partnering with the California Highway Patrol for the month of April as part of a state-wide distracted driving awareness campaign.
