Burlingame Police are taking extra action to get drivers to think twice about unsafe driving habits.

On Wednesday, Feb. 20, Burlingame Police will participate in the S.T.E.P. (Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program) in San Carlos, Belmont and throughout the Redwood Shores.

Officers will be on the look-out for distracted drivers talking on cell phones or texting, pedestrian right of way violations, and driving at unsafe speeds.

Last month’s deployment in Burlingame and San Mateo consisted of 20 officers from 17 different agencies in San Mateo County, and resulted in over 150 citations for unsafe driving behavior, according to Burlingame Police.  

S.T.E.P is a joint law enforcement effort, consisting of traffic officers from local law enforcement agencies throughout San Mateo County. It aims to increase traffic safety throughout the Peninsula.
