Apple Valley will step up its efforts to decrease unsafe driving.
A grant of nearly $70,000 will allow the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department to focus more on drunken drivers, violators of the state’s hands-free cell phone laws and other drivers dangerous to pedestrians and bicycle riders, according to a statement on the town’s website.
“The public safety in our community has always been a top priority of this Council,” said Mayor pro tem Art Bishop in a statement.
“Ultimately, this grant will increase our efforts of traffic control and pedestrian safety, as well as new community outreach programs and services. Apple Valley contracts with the sheriff’s department for law enforcement and public safety.
The grant, which is scheduled to run through September 2023, was awarded by the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to the statement.
You need to get cops out on the street to get all the speeders. They are going to kill somebody especially the road races on riverside dr. You need to set speed traps from the school to the end of Riverdside dr.
