Have to be in Pasadena on Friday? Behave yourself and be extra sensitive to the red lights as Pasadena Police are running a special enforcement detail from 6AM to 1PM, perfect for the morning commute and lunch traffic. Don’t see a cop? Don’t worry the numerous red light cams are always on in Pasadena to enforce the law. (Missing your front plate…don’t worry the system will grab your rear plate too!)
Ignore the warning only if you have an extra $500 to spend on a ticket, more if you are illegible for traffic school and use that route to avoid a point on your license.
The purpose of this crack down is to raise awareness of the dangers of running red lights. The cost of overtime for all of the extra officers on patrol is being underwritten by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Now you may go back to doing whatever you do during the day at work.
