Atherton and Menlo Park: Police focus on traffic safety in extra patrols today

 

Police from law enforcement agencies from around the county are once again collaborating in a traffic-safety initiative, today (Wednesday, Sept. 21) in Atherton and Menlo Park, patrolling "known trouble spots" until 4 p.m., according to a statement from the town of Atherton.

Today's deployment of 24 officers is the ninth occasion in 2016 for the Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program, or STEP, a traffic-safety education and enforcement campaign.

Several officers will also be assigned to assist the transit police, a division of the Sheriff's Office, in monitoring traffic at railroad crossings.

Obey the speed limit, stop at stop signs, and turn the phone off. Especially in school zones. It's not that hard.
