A total of 342 motorists were ticketed or received verbal warnings for various traffic violations in La Mesa on Wednesday as part of a periodic multi-agency effort.

Motorcycle officers from agencies across San Diego County carried out the four-hour enforcement operation, beginning at 7 a.m., La Mesa police Lt. Brian Stoney said.

In addition to the citations and verbal admonitions issued, a dozen vehicles were impounded for driver’s license violations, according to Stoney.

Taking part in the patrols along with La Mesa police were law enforcement personnel from the county Sheriff’s Department; the cities of Carlsbad, Chula Vista, Coronado, Escondido and Oceanside; and the University of California, San Diego.

“We are happy to say that today’s detail was a success and is sure to help make our roadways a safer place for everyone (who) travels upon them,” the lieutenant said.
