“With crowds increasing in beach areas during the summertime and people in a ‘vacation’ frame of mind, traffic safety concerns increase,” said Carlsbad Traffic Sgt. Paul Reyes.
According a Carlsbad Police Department press release, approximately 15 locations in Carlsbad where speeding and other traffic violations are common were the focus of Thursday’s traffic-enforcement efforts.
In four hours, approximately 166 citations were issued for violations including speeding, red light violations and unsafe moving. Six vehicles were towed for unlicensed or suspended driver’s licenses.
