Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operation Planned
For Immediate Release
September 12, 2017
PEDESTRIAN SAFETY ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS PLANNED
Corona, CA- September is California Pedestrian Safety Month and with school back in session, the Police Department would like to remind drivers and pedestrians to be safe. On Sept. 14, 2017 the Corona Police Department will be conducting a pedestrian safety enforcement operation with focused enforcement on collision causing factors involving motorists and pedestrians. Routine traffic patrols will focus efforts in trouble spots while special targeted patrols will also be deployed to crackdown on drivers and pedestrians who violate traffic laws meant to protect all roadway users.
The department has mapped out locations over the past 5 years where pedestrian involved collisions have occurred along with the violations that led to those crashes. Officers will be looking for traffic offenses made by drivers and pedestrians alike that can lead to life changing injuries. Special attention will be directed toward failing to yield to pedestrians in cross walks. Additionally, enforcement will be taken for observed violations of pedestrians failing to yield to drivers who have the right of way. Pedestrians should cross the street only in marked crosswalks or intersections.
If you have any questions about these enforcement operations please contact Sergeant Michael Nielsen at 951-739-4885 or email Michael.Nielsen@CoronaCA.gov.
