Sheriff's Department Increases Presence on PCH in Malibu
After public outcry about safety concerns on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has added a motorcycle deputy to patrol the area, reports the Santa Monica Daily Press.
The newly-assigned deputy is there to focus principally on speeding, because that is the chief cause of accidents on the busy roadway.
So far, there have been an additional 135 traffic citations in the area for which the deputy is monitoring, and of those, "80 percent were for speeding violations while the remaining citations were for right-of-way, cell phone, drivers' license, stopping, seat belt and pedestrian violations."
