CHP Issues 21 Citations at Pedestrian Safety Operation

As part of ongoing efforts to improve pedestrian safety in Isla Vista, the California Highway Patrol (CHP), conducted an enforcement operation on Sept. 13 that focused on traffic safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists on roadways.

The exercise took place 7-11 a.m. at Camino Pescadero and Picasso Road in Santa Barbara County. Officers issued 21 citations for various violations and one verbal warning was given.

The CHP is committed to preventing deaths and is leading the effort with proactive enforcement and education programs.

The CHP is conducting this public awareness and enforcement program to educate and encourage members of the community to develop and maintain safe practices while driving, walking and bicycling throughout California.

The CHP reports these enforcement operations are an effective way to communicate pedestrian right-of-way laws to both drivers and pedestrians. The enforcement exercises are in response to community requests and to educate the public.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
