Two pedestrian citations and 31 traffic tickets were issued last week during a three-and-a-half hour police operation that focused on pedestrian safety and distracted driving in Petaluma.
The operation used 18 traffic officers and was held Wednesday between 11 a.m and 2:30 p.m. within the city, according to the
Petaluma Police Department.
Assisting Petaluma in the effort were police departments from Santa Rosa, Sebastopol, Rohnert Park and the
California Highway Patrol as part of the Combined Intensive Traffic Enforcement (C.I.T.E.) program within Sonoma County.
These operations are aimed at reducing distracted driving, along with pedestrian and bicyclist collisions.
