In the News: PGH Police agencies do targeted traffic enforcement in Oakland
On Wednesday, February 18, 2009, Pittsburgh City Police, University of Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Mellon University police issued 33 citations and 14 warnings during a targeted pedestrian safety enforcement. Tickets were issued to drivers for failure to yield to pedestrians while pedestrians received tickets for failure to cross in a designated area (jaywalking). The objective of the targeted enforcement was to increase awareness about pedestrian safety. With a large college-student population as well as the notorious Fifth Avenue bus-lane, Oakland is an ideal location to increase awareness about pedestrian safety.
