November 17, 2009 - Today the Santee traffic deputies along with area school resource officers and the Santee COPPS Unit will be conducting a juvenile driver enforcement detail. Special attention will be given to all drivers near schools. Drivers will be stopped and cited for all traffic violations including use of cell phones and texting while driving. Juvenile drivers will be cited if they are not in compliance with provisional license restrictions.
The juvenile driver compliance detail is intended to promote juvenile safety through education and enforcement and hopefully decrease the risks associated with teen driving during the holiday season. School Resource Officers have organized a series of events to increase community and juvenile awareness regarding social host ordinances and alcohol and drug use, with an emphasis on drunk driving.
