At the last SNA meeting, Captain Joseph McFadden of the Ingleside Police Station told attendees that his officers would be out during August on Monterey Blvd (as they often are) enforcing moving violations of the type identified by the City’s Vision Zero program–those that endanger vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists. Last year we had collisions resulting in severe injuries and one death on Monterey, triggering the new designation as a “high-injury corridor.” Yesterday a resident saw several citations taking place on Monterey.

Ingleside Police Station announces traffic safety enforcement with a focus on pedestrian and bicycle safety:

Traffic Safety Enforcement Operations Plan for San Francisco with OTS [Office of Traffic Safety] Grant

The San Francisco Police Department will conduct Traffic Safety Enforcement Operations on May 4th, 8th, 16th and 26th with a focus on bicycle and pedestrian safety. Over the past three years, the department has identified areas where significant numbers of pedestrian and bicycle-related collisions have occurred and responded by deploying additional officers to those areas in an effort to prevent deaths and injuries. Special attention will be given to Focus on the Five violations: excessive and unsafe speed, unsafe turns, failure to stop for signs and signals, failure to yield to pedestrians in cross walks, as well as any other dangerous violation.

San Francisco is committed to eliminating traffic deaths on our streets by 2024 as part of Vision Zero SF. Vision Zero SF is our city’s commitment to prioritize safe streets for everyone.

Bicycle and pedestrian fatalities are rising in California as more people use these non-motorized means of transportation. In 2013, California witnessed 701 pedestrians and 141 bicyclists killed, accounting for more than 28 percent of all traffic fatalities.

All riders are reminded to always wear a helmet – those under 18 years of age must wear helmets by law. Pedestrians should cross the street only in marked or unmarked crosswalks at corners. All motorists are reminded to be mindful of others who share the road.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
