Police will conduct another “high-visibility enforcement” operation Wednesday in Torrance to crack down on traffic violations that can lead to collisions, injuries and deaths.

This operation, which will run throughout the city, will include help from officers from Gardena, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo and Hawthorne, police said. The task force will utilize sign boards to remind drivers to obey traffic laws.

During a high-visibility enforcement” operation from 7-10 a.m. Feb. 15 at Pacific Coast Highway and Hawthorne Boulevard, the majority of tickets involved improper cellphone usage, failure to obey signs and unsafe speed.

In operations the same day at Crenshaw and Artesia boulevards, and Redondo Beach Boulevard and Prairie Avenue, the major violations were improper cellphone use and stoplight violations. Five pedestrians were cited for jaywalking, and a motorist was cited for driving on the wrong side of the road. An unlicensed 17-year-old, who was clocked at 90 mph on a motorcycle, also was cited.
