Speeding Crackdown Nabs More Motorists
Police said the special detail was geared to keeping everyone safe and was the fourth special operation the department has run. This one took place Saturday. The program relies on heavy enforcement and public education as a means to help reduce deaths and injuries on local roadways.
Police said that when caught speeding, driver’s often ask for just a verbal warning. Police officers said “no” to that request on Saturday and issued them speeding tickets during Saturday’s operation. One speeding driver was also driving on a suspended driver’s license, and his vehicle was impounded.
Police said these speeding enforcement efforts will continue throughout the year and as long as it takes to get the message out to not speed in the City of La Mesa. Funding for this operation was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
