Seventeen drivers were ticketed during a Chino Hills Police Department bicycle and pedestrian safety enforcement operation Oct. 29 at Pipeline and Descanso avenues in Chino Hills.

The operation took place between noon and 4 p.m., said Deputy Sokly Chau.

Drivers were cited for failing to yield and following too closely, the deputy said. 

One driver was cited for having a suspended license and one was cited for expired registration.

“We are in an unprecedented time, but even during a pandemic, the safety of the road users remains a top priority,” Deputy Chau said. “We hope this operation serves as a reminder to everyone to practice safe biking, driving and walking behaviors when they are out.”

A similar operation in Chino Hills is planned for May 2021, Deputy Chau added.

Funding for the operation comes from a grant by the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
