Northern Division Police Plan Major Bicycle, Scooter and Pedestrian Safety Enforcement on Monday

The Times of San Diego is reporting that the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) will conduct a bicycle, scooter and pedestrian safety enforcement operation Monday, July 29, 2019, from 10 AM to 6 PM. Officers will focus on enforcing safety laws in the Northern Division, which includes Clairemont, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla and University City.

Officers will be looking for drivers who speed, make illegal turns, fail to stop for signs and signals, fail to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, or any other violations. They will also look for pedestrians who cross the street illegally or fail to yield to drivers who have the right of way. Pedestrians should cross the street only in marked crosswalks or at intersections. California reported 432 pedestrian fatalities in the first six months of 2018, ranking as the 10th most dangerous state for pedestrians, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association.
