Yield to Pedestrians
Chicago police ticketed 18 motorists who didn't slow down for pedestrians -- really plainclothes police -- as part of the city's first crosswalk enforcement initiative of the year today.
The motorists -- who city officials said had plenty of warning -- were stopped traveling northbound on Nagle Avenue at Peterson Avenue.
In any case, the TV footage showed that these cars were flying. Really moving. We're sure they picked out the most egregious examples, but they were grabbing them two and three at a time. For $500 per ticket. And we're sure there are supervisors on scene to make sure each and every ticket is issued.
The next event is planned as follows:
- The next crosswalk enforcement will occur Saturday. Police will be monitoring drivers at 119th and Stewart at 8 a.m., 103rd and South Prairie at 10:30 a.m. and 86th and Commercial at 1 p.m.
