Walk safely… as if your life depended on it
Officers throughout California will be out in force on a “Primary Collision Factor” operation this December 2012. The police will be cracking down on drivers and pedestrians who do not follow the Rules of the Road. This is all in an effort to improve traffic safety, save lives and prevent injuries.
Since 2009, pedestrian fatalities have increased all over California. In Chula Vista alone… there have been six (6) serious injury or fatal vehicle versus pedestrian collisions over the past year. There were three (3) fatalities this past October 2012.
It is both a driver’s and pedestrians responsibility to assure pedestrian safety. Here are a few reminders for us… Drivers and/ or pedestrians to keep in mind while on the roadways:
