April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and local law enforcement in Contra Costa County has kicked off the month with an increase in traffic safety enforcement. On Monday, the Brentwood Police Department kicked off their year-long campaign with additional patrol for the Obey the Sign or Pay the fine.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Antioch Police, Brentwood Police, Oakley Police, Pittsburg Police and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) held their monthly proactive traffic enforcement detail where they patrolled streets in the City of Antioch and City of Oakley resulting in 147 tickets/citations including one felony arrest, 1 warrant arrest and 1 pursuit.
This video is from footage shot Monday & Tuesday, while Antioch Police Officer Eric Johnsen explains a bit about traffic enforcement.
Note – the enforcement detail was delayed in the morning due to rain so this was partial day.
