Pedestrian Safety: City Launches Campaign to Slow Down Drivers
San Francisco seniors and youth will move another step closer to having safer streets as the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) and the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) team up to launch a $140,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Pedestrian Safety Project for Youth and Seniors will promote pedestrian safety by identifying schools and senior centers at high risk for pedestrian injuries and providing focused traffic enforcement by motorcycle officers. The focused enforcement will be on primary collision factors, including speed, redlight violations, stop-sign enforcement, and pedestrian right-of-way. This effort will also partner with the Safe Routes to School Program and the Mayor's Pedestrian Safety Task Force to coordinate pedestrian safety efforts within the City. Read more.
