Recap of Police Outreach Event

Printer-friendly version

Last Saturday's Community Outreach Event, put on by the Brisbane Poilce Department, was a fabulous opportunity for community members of all ages to come to the Community Park and learn about the department and its various functions.  Did you know that Brisbane has a sergeant and two officers that serve on the Northern Regional San Mateo County SWAT team, which is comprised of officers from neighboring agencies in addition to our own?  Well, such is the case, and those who came got to find out more about that, as well as take a look inside the equipment the team uses, such as the "Bear" SWAT vehicle.   The event proved to be a great opportunity to get to know the officers, ask questions, and provided PLENTY of photo opportunities.  In addition to the "Bear" SWAT vehicle being on display was the PD motorcycle, patrol cars, and some of officers' equipment that the public could see, touch, and even try on!  Judging from the pictures, it's likely that it's not just the PD that can say last week's open house was a worthwhile community event to attend.

Lipman Slide Repair

Printer-friendly version

The Lipman Slide Repair Project is breaking ground...literally.  On Monday, contractors arrived on-site and the equipment (made up of 1 bulldozer excavator, 1 padfoot compactor, 1 forklift, and 1 skip loader) made its way up Visitacion Wednesday afternoon. From now until right before school is back in session, contractors will be working to cut back the hillside, which moved outwards towards the Lipman tennis courts as a result of the mudslide that occured there during the 2006 winter storms.  Below is a "before" picture of the construction site, and the aforementioned equipment:

To prevent future mudslides from ocurring in this area, a retaining wall will be installed on the hillside.  The project is anticipated to be largely paid for through a FEMA reimburseable grant, as well as some State dollars.  Work will continue throughout the summer months and conclude by the beginning of the school year in mid-August.  During this time, the tennis courts will be closed, and the area of the playing field will be limited, indicated by the orange construction fencing.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time of construction and rehabilitation.

One Million Californians Still Not Buckling Up


(Brisbane), Calif.
– As families across California plan for upcoming spring travel, there’s not much you can do to control the cost of filling up the gas tank, but you can avoid a costly ticket by making sure that everyone in the car wears their seat belt. Law enforcement throughout the state, including Brisbane Police will be looking for unbelted drivers and passengers as part of the 2011 Click It or Ticket mobilization, May 23 – June 5.  The fines and fees for first time adult seat belt violations is a minimum of $142.  For children under 16, the fine is $445 for a first time offense.

Because nighttime passenger vehicle occupants are among those least likely to buckle up and most likely to die in crashes when unrestrained, nighttime enforcement has become a priority of the Click It or Ticket mobilization. Nationwide, of those who died in nighttime crashes in 2009, nearly two-thirds (62 percent) were not wearing seat belts at the time of their fatal crashes.

“Many nighttime traffic deaths can be prevented if more motorists simply start wearing their seat belts.  Law enforcement throughout the area will be looking for seat belt violators, day and night,” said Police Chief Lisa Macias.  “Citations will be issued without warning.  It’s not just about avoiding a costly ticket; it’s about keeping the ones you care about alive. Remember to buckle up on every trip, day and night.”

California’s current seat belt use rate of 96.2 percent is at an all- time high, but that still leaves nearly one million people who are not buckling up, putting their lives at risk every time they get into the car.  The Click It or Ticket mobilization is credited with increasing the state’s adult seat belt usage rate from 92.5 percent in 2005 to 96.2 percent in 2010.

“We are very proud of California’s seat belt and child safety seat use rates,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety.  “However, with nearly one million motorists still not buckling up, there is much more work to do. Reaching the last four percent of motorists is crucial to reaching our goal of zero deaths.”

More than 600 permanent Click It or Ticket highway signs, which have been up since 2005, have been updated to reflect the ‘Minimum $142’ message as a reminder to motorists that failing to buckle up is costly.

Properly restrained drivers, passengers and children have a 50 percent better chance of surviving a crash than unbelted occupants.  Those ejected from vehicles in crashes or roll-overs are up to 35 times more likely to die than restrained occupants.  In 2009 alone, seat belts saved approximately 12,713 lives nationwide.  In California, it is estimated that 320 people who were killed in 2009 would be alive today if they had been wearing seat belts.
