The San Francisco Police Department will be cracking down on drivers this month, in efforts to prevent deaths and injuries. Extra traffic enforcement officers will be deployed on Feb. 7, 16, 24 and 27 at high injury intersections around The City.

According to a news release sent out Monday by SFPD, the department has identified a number of locations around The City over the past three years where pedestrian and cyclist injuries have occurred. In response, they’re cracking down on drivers speeding, making illegal turns, failing to stop for signs and signals, failing to yield to pedestrians in cross walks, and any other dangerous violations.

“All riders are reminded to always wear a helmet – those under 18 years of age must wear helmets by law. Pedestrians should cross the street only in marked or unmarked crosswalks at corners. All motorists are reminded to be mindful of others who share the road,” SFPD states.

The intersections were not identified in the news release.
