Law enforcement officers focused on unsafe driving along the El Camino Real corridor in central San Mateo County on Monday, issuing 35 citations and 10 warnings to motorists in the area.

The heightened traffic safety enforcement took place along the same stretch of roadway in San Bruno that local resident Bernabe Lactawen was killed while crossing the street on July 6.

The citations were issued primarily for speeding on El Camino Real.

On top of the speeding citations, one person was arrested for an outstanding DUI warrant, one was cited for driving with a suspended license and one was cited for driving without a license.

San Mateo County officials said that similar traffic safety deployments will continue throughout the year as part of an effort to reduce injuries and deaths on San Mateo County roadways.

About time. Drivers are treating El Camino like its 101 or 280.

what about busting some of those knuckle-dragging bikers who rip the stock pipes off their bikes? 120 DB on el camino travels all the way to Beresford.
