Our new Police Chief Andy Mills invites you to a Street Smarts traffic safety presentation on Thursday, November 16, at the Santa Cruz Police Community Room from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
This Street Smarts presentation will be delivered by Traffic Sergeant Scott Garner, a 20-year SCPD veteran officer and traffic expert. He will highlight traffic safety issues and solutions for safer commuting with strategies to create a more reliable traffic environment for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. The event is a community-driven approach to traffic safety education.
Following the presentation, Sergeant Garner will answer questions. The meeting is an opportunity to listen to your concerns and respond on the spot— a first step to remedying traffic safety issues in our neighborhoods.
Street Smarts is the City’s new traffic safety public education campaign with mission to reduce the number of traffic-related crashes and injuries in Santa Cruz. The campaign is designed for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians, and intends to improve the behavior of all three groups. Free Street Smarts yard signs and bumper stickers will be available at the event.
