Moreno Valley Checkpoints


This was received in a recent e-mail (interesting)

On February 2010,  OTS who funds these checkpoints sent a private investigator to observe the checkpoints and found VIOLATIONS on behalf of Moreno Valley Police Department.   
One of the violations were that they were not following OTS guidelines...    NO TOWER LIGHTS OR SIGNS.  OTS granted them an additional $ 20, 000.00,  for the purchase of tower lights.    Furthermore,   Moreno Valley Police Department was WARNED by OTS!
   (OTS = state Office of Traffic Safety)

Sept 2, just received information that this was a result of a complaint by the Moreno Valley Parents Association.
