The Oxnard Police Department will be holding a traffic safety enforcement operation on Sunday, November 15. 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 8 p.m. focused on violations that put other people on the road at risk.

These violations include speeding, failure to yield, failure to stop for signs and signals, illegal turns, pedestrians who cross the street illegally or bike riders not complying with stop signs and signals.

To keep you and your family safe, the Oxnard Police Department offers the following tips when out biking, driving or walking:

PEDESTRIANS

  • Try to cross at marked crosswalks or intersections with a stop sign or signal.
  • Look for cars backing up. Avoid going between parked cars.
  • Make eye contact with drivers. Don’t assume they see you.
  • Wear bright clothing during the day and use a flashlight at night.

DRIVERS

  • Wait for pedestrians to cross the street. Be courteous and patient.
  • Stay off the phone.
  • Follow the speed limit.
  • Look for pedestrians when backing up or turning.

BICYCLISTS

  • Always wear a helmet. Helmets are required by law for anyone under 18.
  • Bicyclists must travel in the same direction of traffic and have the same requirements as any slow-moving vehicle.

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