COSTA MESA...Last week, Graduation Week, the Traffic Safety Bureau was out at the marked crosswalks on Placentia and 20th Street as well as 17th Street and Raymond to make sure vehicles yielded as PD staff dressed as graduates crossed the street.

The drivers that failed to yield were given a citation. Enforcing pedestrian safety laws is an important part of traffic safety. Between the two locations, officers cited 33 drivers for crosswalk violations.

During the targeted enforcement, multiple citizens thanked the traffic sergeants for focusing on pedestrian safety, which was very appreciated.

Always be mindful of pedestrians crossing the street in marked crosswalks. On the flip side, pedestrians always need to cross the street using marked crosswalks when the signals allow. Photo:CMPIO
