Town Of Moraga

Slow Down Lamorinda Starting June 1

The Moraga, Orinda, and Lafayette Police Departments, with support from the Moraga-Orinda Fire District, have agreed to specifically address traffic safety this summer. “Slow Down Lamorinda” was initiated in 2007 in reaction to several fatal collisions in Lamorinda. The program was a great success and Town Council listed the program as a goal this year. One day each week, police from all three departments will saturate areas of concern within one city, and rotate among the cities weekly. The goal of the program is not to issue hundreds of citations, but to increase traffic safety awareness by targeting speed, distracted driving, and other violations. All Lamorinda residents are also asked to sign THE LAMORINDA SAFE DRIVING PLEDGE and submit it to their local Police Department. The pledge is intended to remind each of us to be safe and tolerant drivers to make our communities safe for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Banners will be displayed at local Fire Stations and free bumper stickers will be available at police stations. The pledge form will also be available on the Town’s website. The program will begin on June 1 and continue through August 31.
