Pasadena police focus on motorcyclists' traffic safety

The Pasadena Police Department is staffing additional officers Sunday in areas frequented by motorcyclists in an effort to curb accidents.

Police officers will be looking out for drivers and motorcyclists under the influence of drugs or alcohol or violating traffic laws.

Pasadena saw no fatal accidents involving motorcyclists in 2011 or this year, but the department says fatal motorcycle accidents have increased 175% in California over the last 10 years.

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program offers training. Information is available at www.ca-msp.org or (877) RIDE 411 ([877] 743-3411).
