Redwood City nets $100,000 grant for traffic safety patrols

in Community/Featured/Headline and

A $100,000 state grant will mean more DUI saturation patrols in Redwood City, along with additional patrolling of intersections where pedestrian and bicyclists are most often involved in collisions.

The Redwood City Police Department announced today it has received the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) grant to implement a year-long enforcement and public awareness program. The grant is part of an ongoing collaborative relationship between Redwood City police and OTS, and a “key component in our efforts to improve traffic safety in our community,” Redwood City Police Chief Dan Mulholland said.

In 2019, the grant will help fund checks for seat belt and child safety seat compliance, patrols targeting speeding, red light and stop sign infractions and traffic safety education programs for youth and community members, among others.
