Every year, the Walnut Creek Police Department (WCPD) receives over 600 calls reporting reckless driving.
Officers respond to these calls for service but because these vehicles are on the move, the offending vehicles are often unable to be located.
To help keep drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians safe, WCPD is introducing a Reckless Driver Letter as an additional tool for education.
In addition to responding to calls regarding reckless drivers, this allows the department to send a letter to the registered owner of the vehicle that is reported to be driving recklessly. The letter informs the registered owner that their vehicle was reported to the police department. This allows for education of the driver of the vehicle.
“This letter is just another tool in our effort to prevent accidents and protect life and property”, police said.
