County law enforcement rolls out school safety campaign

'Operation Safe Passage' to focus on traffic safety near schools throughout Santa Clara County

Law enforcement agencies are scheduled to participate in a school safety program this week throughout Santa Clara County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The enforcement, known as "Operation Safe Passage," will be in effect today through Friday in all school zones throughout the county, the CHP said.

It is set up to alert parents transporting their children, commuters and children walking and riding bikes to school that traffic safety and the rules of the road will be strictly enforced, according to the CHP.

The ultimate goal is to develop a safe and long-lasting attitude among the communities near school zones.

Duh... and the rules should be enforced.... NO CARS in the bike lanes (going around turning vehicles), and teaching the kids that STOP SIGNS apply to BIKES as well... and that if it is a cross walk, one can NOT ride a bike across, but rather, it must be WALKED.

And parents.... Please let your middle and high school kids WALK to school..Free up the streets for real drivers. JEEZE, will they still be breast feeding as they graduate

At last! Maybe not as lucrative as a seatbelt crackdown, or MVPD's borderline-entrapment pedestrian sting, but finally a police campaign that targets an actual safety issue.
