Buckle Up, Hang Up, and Slow Down

This morning, San Carlos motorists will notice 10-20 police motorcycle officers from throughout the county patrolling city streets.

Buckle Up, Hang Up, and Slow Down

Give yourself plenty of time to get to school, work or the gym this morning because you don't want to be caught speeding or rolling through a stop sign.

According to the Feb. 15 City of San Carlos newsletter, from 8 a.m.-noon Wednesday, the Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.) will conduct traffic safety and enforcement on the streets of San Carlos.

The City of San Carlos is one of several agencies in San Mateo County that have agreed to pool resources and rotate a large contingent of traffic enforcement officers.

On Wednesday, San Carlos motorists can expect to see 10 to 20 police motorcycle officers working on traffic enforcement throughout the city.

Officers will be looking for distracted drivers (talking on cell phones and texting while driving), pedestrian right-of way violations, and unsafe speed, among other traffic safety issues. They will be focused in complaint areas, high accident areas, and school zones.

The city will report the results of that program upon conclusion. City officials say the primary goal of S.T.E.P. is to increase traffic safety and awareness to residents and commuters in known trouble spots.
