The Culver City Police Department Awarded $105,000.00 Grant From the California Office of Traffic Safety

Culver City, Calif. – The Culver City Police Department will continue its police traffic services program to deter dangerous and illegal driving behaviors that increase the risk of traffic collisions in the community.

“Impairment, speeding and other dangerous driving behaviors jeopardize the safety of other people on the road,” Police Chief Manuel Cid said. “This funding allows us to continue to provide additional traffic enforcement measures, with the goal of further reducing serious injury and fatal crashes on our roads.”

The grant will pay for additional enforcement measures, including:
 DUI checkpoints and patrols specifically focused on suspected impaired drivers.
 Enforcement operations focused on suspected distracted driver s in violation of California’s hands free cell phone law.
 Bicycle and pedestrian safety enforcement operations focused on driver behaviors that put vulnerable road users at risk.
 Enforcement operations focused on top violations that cause crashes: speeding , failure to yield , stop sign and/or red light running and improper turning or lane changes.
 Community education presentations on traffic safety issues such as distracted driving, DUI, speed ing , and bicycle and pedestrian safety.
 Collaborative enforcement efforts with neighboring agencies.
 Officer training and/or recertification : Standard Field Sobriety Test (SFST), Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).

The grant program will run through September 2022.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
