In an effort to reduce the high number of pedestrian and vehicle accidents in San Diego, local police forces concentrated on issuing tickets to distracted pedestrians and drivers last Thursday. Police issued 81 warnings, and 328 tickets for traffic violations such as jaywalking and entering the crosswalk on a red light. Tickets were about $100 each. Police also cited bicyclist and drivers who failed to obey the rules of the road.

Since the beginning of the year, 19 pedestrian accidents have been reported. Of these accidents, 10 of them are attributed to pedestrians who violated traffic regulations.

More pedestrian crackdowns are scheduled in the near future. Hopefully these citations will serve as an educational opportunity, and encourage individuals to practice safe habits and be more aware of their surroundings.
