Pedestrian safety the focus of September

Police are cracking down on motorists after one woman was killed and another nearly died after being hit by vehicles in the crosswalk.  

During the month of September, San Francisco Police Department's Traffic Company will be conducting Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operations at various locations throughout The City including Geary Street, San Bruno Avenue, Bayshore Boulevard, Sixth Street and Cole Valley.  

The stings will take place during peak traffic times and officers will focus on violations that are the “leading causes of pedestrian collisions,” such as pedestrian right-of-way violations in marked and unmarked cross walks, red light violations, stop sign violations and speeding.  
 
The crackdown is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, according to police.
