The Monrovia Police Department would like to inform drivers and make them aware of a new law that is now in effect. The new Three Feet for Safety Act requires motorists to give at least three feet clearance to bicyclists when passing from behind. Drivers must “slow to a speed that is reasonable and prudent” and pass when the cyclist will not be endangered if traffic or roadway conditions prevent giving three feet when passing.
On October 14, 2014, the upgrade to the Monrovia Police Communications 9-1-1 Center was completed. The upgrade included a new, state-of-the-art 9-1-1 phone system and new ergonomic dispatch consoles and chairs that were funded through the California Office of Emergency Management 9-1-1 Program Office. In addition, the radio system was also upgraded.
