Watch Out Tomorrow: Run A Red Light And You Will Be Cited

Pasadena Police say they will conduct a Red Light Enforcement Program this Friday, March 9. A RED LIGHT, police say is stopping at a stop line, crosswalk or before the intersection. They say unless you are making a right turn, you must wait for the green light before you proceed. Traffic officials say after making a complete stop, you may turn right on a red light if the intersection/crosswalk is clear of pedestrians and traffic. However, they say if the intersection is posted with a “No Right Turn on Red” sign, you must wait for a green light before any turning movement.

The Pasadena Police Department says they are committed to reducing the number of traffic collisions resulting from drivers running red lights or driving aggressively. They say their purpose is to enforce and educate the driving public by reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions.

Authorities say the Red Light Enforcement Program’s hours of operation will be from 6:00 A.M to 12:00 P.M. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
