Santa Monica Police To Crack Down On Motorists Who Speed, Disobey Stop Signs:

The Santa Monica Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Section will focus on motorists who speed and fail to stop for posted stop signs during the next three months.

SMPD Lt. Jay Trisler said unsafe speed is one of the leading causes of traffic collisions in the City of Santa Monica.

Also, Trisler said the driver of any vehicle, including bicycles approaching a stop sign, must come to a complete stop with wheels ceasing forward movement.

The crack down will be during the months of July, August, and September.

WHAT CONSTITUTES A VIOLATION?

* 22350 CVC – Basic Speed Law: No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.
