San Gabriel Police enacting zero tolerance policy for speeders and distracted drivers

In light of the recent tragic fatal traffic collisions involving pedestrians, the San Gabriel Police Department is enacting a “zero tolerance” policy for speeders and distracted drivers in San Gabriel. This campaign is designed to increase driver and pedestrian safety as well as raise overall awareness.

Drivers obeying the posted speed limit help increase the safety of those who use the roadways and sidewalks, including the motoring public, bicyclists, and pedestrians.  We encourage pedestrians to do their part in helping make the roadways safe by crossing the street safely and adhering to the rules of the road with respect to traversing the roadways. Additionally, pedestrians should be cognizant of their surroundings, including vehicular traffic while using any electronic devices.

This safety reminder is the first component of the Defensive Driver and Defensive Pedestrian safety campaign initiated by the San Gabriel Police Department.  More details of the San Gabriel Police Department’s effort will be forthcoming.
