It’s Black Friday, and shoppers need all the help they can get. SRPD is trying to do its part.
Sgt. Lance Badger said he’s assigned his motorcycle officers to pay extra attention to traffic problems around Coddingtown Shopping Center and the Santa Rosa Marketplace on Santa Rosa Avenue. Both are notorious for congestion at this time of year.
He said the officers particularly will be watching for cars running red lights and blocking intersections and will try to maintain a high visibility to encourage motorists to mind their manners and follow the traffic laws.
