"Run a Red Light and You Will Be Cited"
The Pasadena Police Department will conduct a Red Light Enforcement Program on Friday July 13, 2012. This enforcement detail will be deployed throughout the City of Pasadena. The hours of operation will be from 6:00 A.M to 1:00 P.M.
The Pasadena Police Department is committed to reducing the number of traffic collisions resulting from drivers running red lights or driving aggressively. The ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public at the same time reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions.
A RED LIGHT means stop at the stop line, crosswalk or before the intersection. Unless you are making a right turn, you must wait for the green light before you proceed. After making a complete stop, you may turn right on a red light if the intersection/crosswalk is clear of pedestrians and traffic. However, if the intersection is posted with a "No Right Turn on Red" sign, you must wait for a green light before any turning movement.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
