The Santa Monica Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Section is focusing on motorists traveling at unsafe speeds and those who fail to stop for posted stop signs now through September.
An SMPD press release stated that speeding is one of the leading causes of traffic collisions in Santa Monica. Drivers and cyclists are also encouraged to make a full stop at stop signs with wheels ceasing movement.
Those on the road are advised that city officials are proposing the addition of four-way stop signs along Broadway due to 28 accidents at six intersections on that street between November 2007 and June 2013.
A violation regards failure to follow the California Basic Speed Law and failure to stop at the limit line at the entrance to or within an intersection.
