Antioch Police issued 3,138 traffic citations in 2022.

“We understand people choose not to obey traffic signs, traffic lights, and speed limits, but we want you to know we listen to your concerns and our officers have worked hard to address these concerns,” the department said.

“These citations were issued by officers in our Traffic Enforcement Unit and Patrol Officers. This number does not reflect when officers pull over a car and arrest the driver or do not issue a citation. We will continue to address your concerns and hold people accountable when they choose not to follow the traffic laws,” according to the department.

Strong work, Antoch PD!
Maybe some of the Claycord area PDs will see it and start actually enforcing traffic laws.

It seems that every stop light I’m at somebody runs a red light these days. I think the Antioch police are going easy on the public it only averages out to 8 or 9 tickets today for the whole police force.

While that number seems like a lot of tickets. That is ONLY an average of 8.6 a day for the year. I see that many violations on my way to work each day.

That number should be at least double. Especially if you have ANY officers on traffic patrol. That seems like a low number for even 1 officer a day that is dedicated to traffic. You can do better…….

Can you find the stats for Concord. I haven’t personally seen a traffic stop in literally years here in Concord.

Good start but still inadequate for the amount of wrecked driving I see on a daily basis. Thank you.

The intersections in west antioch that look like they’ve been repaved,
nope it’s burnout deposits from sideshows.

So 1 in 36 odds based on population to receive a ticket. Hahah. They’re bragging like it’s a lot.

dude January 25, 2023 - 11:13 PM - 11:13 PM

The odds are much lower than that if you make that by the day. Let’s just assume 25,000 cars drive in Antioch a day. Out of those cars, only 8.6 are getting a ticket. PATHETIC!!

It’s easy pickins everywhere… I wish other police departments and the CHP were more vigilant about enforcing motor vehicle laws.

Worst offenses (in my opinion).

1. Tailgating
2. Distracted driving
3. Unsafe lane changes
4. Failing to signal
5. Failing to come to a complete stop.
6. Speeding in residential areas

Include driving slow in the fast lane (V.C. 21650) to your list.
