Beaumont, CA - On Friday, January 14, 2021, the Beaumont Police Department conducted traffic enforcement under a grant from the Office of Transportation Safety. During the four hour enforcement period officers issued 12 citations and arrested one subject. The citations were issued for various California Vehicle Code violations, including speeding and failing to stop at traffic signals/signs. One arrest was made for a subject driving on a suspended license and outstanding warrants.
Impairment, speeding and other dangerous driving behaviors jeopardize the safety of other people on the road. This enforcement activity, which also includes DUI Checkpoints, saturation patrols and traffic enforcement details is part of our traffic services program to deter dangerous and illegal driving behaviors, which increase the risk of crashes in the community. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This funding allows us to provide necessary traffic enforcement measures with the goal of reducing serious injury and fatal crashes on our roads. The grant program runs through September 2022.
