PASADENA (CBS) — Pasadena police will conduct a special enforcement effort at high-collision intersections Tuesday throughout the city.

Between 6 a.m. and noon, officers will focus on ticketing motorists who run red lights or drive aggressively through intersections, according to  Lt. Randell Taylor of the Pasadena Police Department.

Authorities said the ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public and at the same time reduce serious injuries and fatal collisions.

Funding for the program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, using federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    I think that is great, now all they have to do is nail all the drivers who roll though stop signs in Altadena. My friend and I walk 3 times a week in Altadena and you take your life in your hands because most of the people don’t stop behind the white line, they just roll right on through.

    Good for Pasadena. Now if the Altadena Sheriff would do something about the drivers up there who roll through the stop signs. My friend and I walk in Altadena 3 times a week and find we are taking our life in our own hands crossing at an intersection. People don’t stop behind the white line, they just roll through whether there are people crossing or cars coming.

      Now all they need is grant money to slow the White BMW’s in Glendale and you will see a much safer town there. I doubt the can clean up the attitude of Glendalians tho.
