The traffic division of the San Francisco Police Department will continue its series of pedestrian right-of-way enforcement operations today.
Today's enforcement will start around 7:30 a.m. at Park Presidio Boulevard and Crossover Drive, according to San Francisco police.
The program, which is run in conjunction with the San Francisco Department of Public Health, will focus on right turn on red violations, speed law compliance, and school zone traffic enforcement.
The program aims to reduce the number of pedestrian fatalities that result from vehicular collisions, according to police. The traffic division assesses traffic collision hot spots and prepares enforcement areas accordingly.
The Department of Public Health is running a radio advertisement campaign that highlights the right-of-way violations to reinforce the efforts of police enforcement areas.
Funding for the program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to police.
