- The Chicago police had announced what they were up to: a sting to nab drivers who don't yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. They even disclosed the when and the where. It was in all the papers—on Page One.
Still, when Officer John Porter stepped cautiously into the crosswalk at the busy intersection of North Lawndale and West Belmont Avenues on Monday, he put himself in harm's way, time after time.
In just two hours, with Porter as their lone decoy, police pulled over 101 drivers, issuing them warning citations.
It's like a cash cow waiting to be milked! It's also 101 opportunities for this decoy to get his poor self run over. Be careful out there officer. We don't know how close you're getting to the cross traffic, but once is enough to cause a world of pain.
