Multi-Agency Distracted Driving Enforcement
In an effort to reduce collisions and injuries as well as provide education through enforcement, the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety in partnership with Santa Clara Police Department, Milpitas Police Department, City of Los Altos Police Department, Gilroy Police Department, Morgan Hill Police Department, Mountain View Police Department, California Highway Patrol, and the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office, will be conducting high visibility, directed traffic enforcement operations county-wide from August 3 through August 9, 2019.
The enforcement will be focused on distracted driving violations, but all moving and non-moving violations may be enforced as applicable. Each agency participating will provide 1-2 motor officers for the campaign. This campaign is in honor of California Highway Patrol Officer Kirk Griess, who faithfully served the people of California as a CHP Officer for 19 years before being killed in the line of duty by a distracted driver on August 10, 2018, as well as the 9 lives lost each day in the United States because of distracted driving.
Funding for this campaign is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety.
