Santa Rosa motorcycle police officers will be keeping an eye out Monday through next Sunday for traffic violators at North Dutton Avenue at West Third Street, which was tied for the seventh-highest number of collisions last year with 9.

As part of a special enforcement program, officers particularly will be looking for drivers not wearing seat belts, who are illegally using cell phones, are speeding, running red lights or committing lane violations.

    When you say an intersection will be targeted it sometimes isn’t. Not sure where you’re getting your info from, but it is frequently wrong (ie, intersection of Piner Rd./Coffey Ln., which hasn’t been targeted to date yet three weeks ago you said it would be). For an article completely about a targeted intersection it would be nice if the intersection does, indeed, become targeted.

    Who cares? Shouldn’t you be driving safe regardless of if an intersection is targeted or not?

    “Targeted Intersection” = all day waste of an officers time. This practice make the police department look like bumbling failures at traffic enforcement. Just another reason to lose faith in our local department to be able to influence the total breakdown of traffic laws. The city as a whole has a failed traffic system. Traffic lights that fail to meet the needs of traffic flow. Pot holes everywhere so it’s almost impossible to stay in a proper lane position without ruining your alignment. Maneuvering a vehicle today in these conditions is like entering a destruction derby. Violently aggressive drivers at every turn make me wonder if I’ll get to my destination in one piece.
