On June 4, 2022, between the hours of 4:00 PM and midnight, Police Officers from the Glendale and Burbank Police Departments conducted a selective traffic enforcement operation along Glenoaks Boulevard and adjacent streets. Officers placed an emphasis on enforcing violations for unsafe speed, reckless driving, seat belt requirements, cell phone use, modified exhaust, vehicle equipment issues, expired registration, and other vehicle code infractions.
The operation resulted in 200 traffic stops. Of the 190 citations issued, 67 were for unsafe speed, 22 were for violating California’s handsfree cell phone law, and 12 were for seatbelt violations. Glenoaks Boulevard was chosen because it serves as a major thoroughfare linking the cities of Glendale and Burbank. The goal of this operation was to maximize high visibility patrol with selective traffic enforcement for the purpose of deterring unsafe driving behaviors while increasing safety and awareness on our roads.
