LA MESA (CNS) - Police cited 27 drivers for speeding and impounded the car of one driver who had a suspended license during aggressive enforcement of speed laws during the fourth Traffic Safety Enforcement Program Saturday.
The program relies on heavy enforcement and public education to help reduce deaths and injuries on local roadways.
La Mesa Police Department said aggressive speeding enforcement will continue throughout the year "as long it takes to get the message out: not to speed."
Funding for the operation was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a former San Diego police officer accused of groping four women during pat-down searches last year.
Chula Vista police will be looking for drivers talking or texting on cell phones Tuesday and through the end of the month as part of "Distracting Driving Awareness Month."
Police were on the lookout Tuesday for the man who fired a shot while robbing a Rolando-area smoke shop and his accomplice who emptied its cash register.
