San Pablo police announced Friday they will conduct special enforcement operations on Thursday, July 14 that will target drivers, pedestrians and cyclists who break the rules.

Locations for increased enforcement have seen the most collisions over the past three years in San Pablo, police said. Over that time, the city’s police has investigated one fatal collision and 66 injury collisions involving pedestrians and bicyclists.

“Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas where collisions occurred involving bicyclists, pedestrians and vehicles in an effort to lower fatal and injury related collisions,” police said in a statement.

Drivers who speed, make illegal turns, fail to stop for stop signs and signals or pedestrians will be targeted. Also, pedestrians who jaywalk or cyclists who fail to follow the same traffic laws that apply to motorists may be stopped by police.

Funds for the July 14 enforcement program comes from a California Office of Traffic Safety grant through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, police said.
