Roseville, Calif.- This morning the Roseville Police Department traffic unit conducted a “zero tolerance” enforcement operation in the area of Stanford Ranch Road, Fairway Drive, and Sunrise Avenue. Officers issued a total of 89 citations in approximately three hours, most for driving at unsafe speeds.
Traffic Sgt. Mike Doane said, “Our goal through these special patrols is to slow traffic down, reduce injury traffic collisions, and make our roadways safer for everyone.”
Roseville’s most recent zero tolerance operation was conducted Monday morning, April 16, on Douglas Boulevard and other major roadways in east Roseville. Officers issued 73 citations, mostly for speeding.
Unsafe speed is the most common cause of injury collisions. Roseville’s zero tolerance patrols are part of a series of special traffic enforcement patrols planned this year to educate motorists about the importance of slowing down and driving safely.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
