Today is the first day of the "S.T.E.P." program that BPD describes as
The Burlingame Police Department is pleased to announce the first deployment of the San Mateo County Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.) on Wednesday, January 16th. S.T.E.P is a collaborative effort, consisting of traffic officers from local law enforcement agencies throughout San Mateo County. Participating officers are detailed to problem locations in San Mateo County based on collision data, community complaints, and expert officer opinion. Specifically, officers will be looking for distracted drivers (talking on cell phones and texting), pedestrian right-of way violations, and unsafe speed.
If I get a chance to chat with BPD I'll add some more detail later. In the meantime, as Sgt. Phil Esterhaus used to say on Hill Street Blues, "be careful out there".
