SSF cops ticket 51 speeders in one day

Police in South San Francisco on Friday issued 51 speeding citations to drivers during a one-day saturation patrol in the city.

The saturation patrol was one of 14 planned in South San Francisco during the next 10 months.

Officers are targeting roadways in the city that have high injury or fatality traffic collision rates where speed was the primary cause of the crash, according to the South San Francisco Police Department. The streets included El Camino Real, Sister Cities Boulevard and Hillside Boulevard.

The program is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
