During the operation, a total of 78 citations were issued to individuals found violating various traffic regulations. The CHP officers specifically targeted offenses such as speeding, reckless driving, failure to obey traffic signals, and more, all aimed at enhancing public safety and reducing the risk of accidents on Malibu’s roadways.

The breakdown of citations issued during the operation is as follows:

  • 63 speeding citations
  • 6 seatbelt citations
  • 2 unsafe turn citations
  • 1 stop sign violation
  • 1 cellphone violation
  • 5 equipment violations

Mayor Uhring expressed concern over the alarming number of accidents and traffic violations, citing eleven accidents since October 17th, with one additional fatality. He called on residents, businesses, and visitors to exercise caution, obey traffic laws, and remain vigilant when driving on the stretch of the highway.

Law enforcement partners, including the CHP and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, are committed to ensuring the safety of all road users and will continue proactive enforcement operations to deter unsafe driving practices. Authorities urge motorists to adhere to posted speed limits, follow traffic rules, and prioritize safety while driving.

The City of Malibu is actively collaborating with Caltrans to implement crucial safety infrastructure improvements, demonstrating its dedication to fostering a safe and secure environment for all road users in Malibu.
