Imperial Valley Press - - NEWS -

From 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Calex­ico Po­lice Depart­ment held a traf­fic en­force­ment de­tail fo­cus­ing on State Route 98.

Of­fi­cers is­sued a to­tal of 31 speed­ing ci­ta­tions through­out the de­tail’s du­ra­tion, stated a CPD press re­lease.

The de­tail was made in an ef­fort to pro­vide for the safety of stu­dent pedes­tri­ans and mo­torists trav­el­ing on SR 98.

Traf­fic on SR 98 has been a source of nu­mer­ous com­plaints from nearby res­i­dents, com­muter trav­el­ers, and the Calex­ico Uni­fied School Dis­trict staff, ex­plained the press re­lease.

“The mis­sion of this de­tail was to ef­fec­tively de­ter any drivers not abid­ing by the laws of the road­way. Not only are there schools present on SR 98, but med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties as well,” stated CPD Chief of Po­lice Reg­gie Gomez, who added the po­lice depart­ment plans to hold sim­i­lar de­tail op­er­a­tions in the fu­ture.
