Back to Crosswalks?
Chicago police have gone on a ticketing blitz focusing on dozens of high-accident locations to enforce a new state law requiring drivers to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
The law, which took effect this summer yet remains little-known among the public, is all about improving safety and reducing crashes involving pedestrians, officials said.
While Charles Burke welcomes the idea, he says he hasn't noticed any changes making it easier to cross streets.
