Montgomery County, MD Police Advice: Yield to Pedestrians!
The police in Montgomery County, Maryland are conducting a number of special enforcement efforts to protect pedestrians. The unannounced “stings” use officers acting as pedestrians to cross streets in marked crosswalks.
Drivers that fail to stop for pedestrians at crosswalks are being issued citations. Dozens of citations are being issued for each location. The volume of driver violations is not a surprise to pedestrians that constantly fear for the safety of themselves and family members as they cross busy streets on a regular basis.
Drivers need to change their habits and take extra caution when passing through areas with pedestrian crosswalks. There are no valid excuses for failing to yield to pedestrians.
By the way, many local police departments are also issuing citations to drivers that are not using their seatbelts.
