FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Jay Moroso, Sergeant
Each month, the Santa Monica Police Department's Traffic Enforcement Section focuses on different driving behaviors that are primary causation for traffic collisions. In March, motor officers will target violations regarding pedestrians.
Although not a driving behavior, pedestrian violations contribute as a primary collision factor in traffic collisions. Pedestrian violations that have resulted in collisions are:
- Walking against a red light or "Don't Walk" symbol
- Failure to yield right-of-way to oncoming traffic
- Pedestrian in the roadway
Lt. Trisler wants to remind all pedestrians to make sure they get to their destination safely by following the rules of the road.
Questions regarding the enforcement effort may be directed to Sergeant Phillbo Rubish at 310-458-8950, or Lieutenant Jay Trisler at 310-458-8471.
