MCPD to Conduct Pedestrian Enforcement Tomorrow

November 3, 2015

In the wake of a number of pedestrian accidents in recent weeks and the shortened daylight hours brought on by adjusting to Standard Time, Montgomery County Police will step-up enforcement of pedestrian laws and violations tomorrow, November 4 at locations along Route 355 (Frederick Road) from Germantown to Bethesda, and on Georgia Avenue from Connecticut Avenue to University Boulevard.

   In an effort to place focus on pedestrian safety, MCPD will be conducting a number of traffic enforcement operations at locations with marked crosswalks and areas that have been identified as pedestrian High Incidence Areas (HIAs) – areas with more pedestrian collisions.

 

   During this enforcement, police will be issuing citations to both drivers and pedestrians who are in violation of the law. Officers will stop drivers who do not yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and officers will stop pedestrians who do not cross the street at crosswalks. Also during this traffic operation, officers in uniform will stop those pedestrians and motorists who do not obey the traffic safety laws.

   “As daylight hours shorten, MCP reminds motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists to be extra vigilant,” according to police. “The goal of improving pedestrian safety in our neighborhoods is a long-term commitment. Drivers and pedestrians must both follow traffic laws and act responsibly in their respective roles,” said an MCPD press release.
