Police Department Schedules Safety Enforcement Operation

The Menifee Police Department will conduct a specialized Motorist Safety Enforcement Operation on April 18 in an effort to lower deaths and injuries, police said today.

Extra officers will be on duty, patrolling areas in the city of Menifee where crashes frequently occur. Officers will be looking for violations made by drivers that can lead to crashes. They will be cracking down on those operating vehicles who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, making illegal/unsafe turns, following too close, red light/stop sign violators, inattention or any other dangerous violation that has the propensity to lead to a crash.

California collision data reveals that primary causes of crashes include speeding, unsafe turning, inattention and impairment due to alcohol and other drugs. The Menifee Police Department is reminding all motorists to always be alert and follow the rules of the road.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


  1. I would like to suggest the area around the Sun city Mall. Cherry Hills Blvd. and Sun City Blvd. (25 MPH). Most streets are 25MPH in our little part of the City. Thank you traffic officers and management for enforcing the driving laws in our City. Very important to our senior residents. Thank you Ron Page
