Temecula: Police cite 75 for traffic violations during enforcement operation

The traffic detail was conducted in response to traffic collisions and requests from the citizens to curb speeding in the area, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report.

In addition to the 75 citations issued, four vehicles were towed because their drivers were either driving on a suspended license or without one, Sheriff’s Sgt. John Magnan said.

One misdemeanor warrant was also served during the time the traffic detail was operating in the area, according to Magnan.

“The goal of this operation was to make motorists more aware of the rules of the road and to promote safe driving,” Magnan said in his report.

Details similar to the one conducted Wednesday are scheduled to take place at other times during the year. For more information, contact the Temecula Police Department Traffic Division at 951-696-3000.
