Deputies conducted a bicycle and pedestrian safety enforcement operation Wednesday which resulted in 29 citations issued, officials said.
The safety operation was held between 7 and 11 a.m. Wednesday throughout Santa Clarita, in an effort to keep bike riders and pedestrians safe while sharing the road with vehicles, said Shirley Miller, spokesperson for the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
“29 traffic citations were issued and one vehicle was towed due to the driver having a suspended license and not having a required ignition interlock device,” said Miller.
Of the citations issued, 11 were for failure to yield to a pedestrian, 12 were for cell phone use, three were for failure to stop at a red light, two were for failure to obey a sign and one was for unsafe speed, according to Miller.
“With more out exercising or running errands, it is a priority to keep the roads safe for all,” Miller said.Do you have a news tip?
