Alhambra police to conduct safety operation where driver struck 2 pedestrians

The Alhambra Police Department will be conducting Thursday morning a Pedestrian Safety Operation at Valley Boulevard and Monterey Street. Plainclothes officers will begin crossing the street at 7 a.m. while uniformed officers monitor the intersection for pedestrian-related traffic violations, including vehicles that do not yield to a pedestrian at a marked or unmarked crosswalk. The operation will end at noon.

Pedestrian safety operations take place in areas where residents, schools, or other community members have complained about pedestrian safety, according to Alhambra Lt. Gabriel Ponce. Thursday's operation is at the same location where driver struck two pedestrians on Aug. 22 while they were crossing Valley. Both victims sustained serious injuries and were transferred to a nearby hospital. 

Alhambra, which has one of the highest rates of car collisions involving elderly pedestrians in California, conducts the enforcement operations about every other month. "The goal is to reduce the number of victims killed and injured due to vehicle/pedestrian related collisions within the community of Alhambra," said a Tuesday morning press release from the Alhambra Police Department.

  1. The police will be very busy issuing tickets this morning. I hope the officers on foot who are crossing the street are very careful.
