Santa Monica, CA – The Santa Monica Police Department will conduct a bicycle and pedestrian safety operation Friday September 3, 2021 from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. aimed at keeping people out exercising or enjoying the outdoors safe.

The Santa Monica Police Department recognizes the need to protect the public by looking for violations made by bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians that make roads unsafe.

These violations include drivers speeding, making illegal turns, failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, failing to stop for signs and signals or any other traffic violation by bike riders or pedestrians.

“Drivers, slow down and allow bicyclists and pedestrians the same access to roads,” Captain Saul Rodriguez said. “To protect you and your family, we want to make sure everyone is following rules that keep them safe.”

The safety of bicyclists and pedestrians remains a top priority for the Santa Monica Police Department. So far this year the Santa Monica Police Department has investigated 1 deadly and 79 injury collisions involving bicyclists and pedestrians.

To keep you and your family safe, the Santa Monica Police Department offers the following tips when out biking, driving or walking:
