40 Traffic Tickets Issued In Santa Clarita As Deputies Enforce School Zones

A total of 40 traffic tickets were issued in school zones in Santa Clarita Monday as students returned to class following winter break, officials said.

Deputies conducted a special enforcement operation to watch for unsafe driving in school zones with four motor deputies, according to Shirley Miller, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s station.

Of the 40 citations, 25 were for unsafe speeds, according to Miller.

“Seven motorists were caught speeding in front of elementary schools,” Miller said. “Fifteen citations were issued for cell phone use and one citation was for a suspended driver’s license.”

This operation follows a similar increased enforcement period held last month, when deputies issued 273 speeding tickets, according to Sheriff’s officials.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station motor deputies are regularly informed of areas where multiple residents have reported unsafe driving so that those areas can be targeted, according to Miller.

“‘Don’t be in such a rush,” Miller said in the previous story. “One of the top concerns relayed to our traffic office is speeders.”

  1. Police need to be on Sloan Cyn and catch parents and residents going 70 mph. A stop or signal needs to be put in at Sloan and Quail Valley before someone is killed. Bur like most things something bad needs to happen first before any official makes this possible. We have gone to public works and emailed our regional superintendent and nothing. Such a shame.

  2. We need more arrest instead of citations . I know i know more paperwork . Your citations are not working . 70,80,90 &100+ down soledad should equal an arrest and possible drivers license revoked. Driving is a privledge. Its not a Right .

  3. They need to be where it’s not safe to speed, and not where there’s an easy ticket opportunity like the area shown in this photograph. There is no cross traffic on this section of Newhall Ranch road. Same with Magic Mountain.
