California Highway Patrol officers Thursday conducted a pedestrian law enforcement operation that resulted in 88 citations for residents taking unsafe actions.
The CHP focused on violators of right-of-way laws by drivers and pedestrians at the intersection of Central Avenue and Bonita Road and the intersection of Bonita Road and Otay Lakes Road. Officers boasted “an unknown number” of residents learned about proper public safety for drivers and pedestrians.
CHP officers reminded residents of best practices to avoid traffic accidents as a driver or pedestrian, including yielding to pedestrians, looking both ways before crossing a street and wearing bright clothing when it’s dark to increase visibility.
“We urge every member of the community to be safe and follow the rules of the road,” the CHP said in a statement. “Traffic safety is everyone’s responsibility.”
