The Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station, Eastvale Traffic Team, Receives OTS Traffic Enforcement Grant

The Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station, Eastvale Traffic Team, has been awarded a $50,390 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety for a year-long enforcement and public awareness program. The traffic safety program is intended to educate the public on sage roadway habits and deter people from violating traffic laws or practicing other unsafe behaviors that lead to injuries and fatalities.

THE OTS grant will fund various education and enforcement activities for the 2020 federal fiscal year (October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020):

  • DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols to take suspected alcohol/drug impaired drivers -and those unlicensed or with a revoked/suspended license- off the road.
  • Distracted driving enforcement, persons driving while talking on, or holding cell phones.
  • Motorcycle safety operations in areas with high rider volume and where higher rate of motorcycle crashes occur.
  • Speeding, red light and stop sign enforcement.
  • Compilation of DUI “Hot Sheets” identifying repeat DUI offenders.

“Getting in a vehicle remains one of the most dangerous things we do,” OTS director Barbara Rooney said. “We must continue to work with our partners in law enforcement to shift that realization and make traveling on our roads safer.”

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