Effective Oct. 16, both cities' police will be supplementing the current enforcement efforts of the California Highway Patrol. Enforcement will focus on speed, driving under the influence, and other hazardous driving behaviors.
The effort is being organized to supplement the recent efforts which resulted in the Gov. Schwarzenegger's signing of Senate Bill SB-3, declaring Vasco Road a Safety Corridor, and establishing a double-fine zone. The hope of the Livermore and Brentwood police departments is that these efforts will positively influence the driving behaviors of the commuting public as they enter this commute artery, and emphasize the fact that a no-tolerance policy will be in effect for hazardous types of driving behaviors throughout the entire length of this corridor.
It is the hope of law enforcement agencies associated with this effort that increased enforcement presence, and not necessarily increased citations, will serve to reduce the number of traffic fatalities attributed to this roadway, and that public recognition of those agencies' cooperative commitment to this issue will serve to further decrease the number of deaths on Vasco Road.
