Motorists, be forewarned. For the entire month of January, Santa Monica Police are stepping up enforcement on motorists making unsafe turns, officials said.
Each month, the traffic enforcement unit focuses on a different driving behavior that causes traffic collisions. This month, the traffic officers will, in addition to their normal duties, focus on motorists making unsafe turns.
Motorists who are caught making make turns without properly signaling or giving enough space to make the turn safely will be cited.
Officials also are reminding motorists that it is unlawful to turn when traveling in a lane that is designed for traveling through an intersection only.
For more information, contact the Santa Monica Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement section at (310) 458-8950.
