San Francisco Mayor, Police Chief Seek Ways to Curb Pedestrian Deaths

January 09, 2014  | 

Since New Year’s Eve, three pedestrians have been fatally struck by vehicles on San Francisco streets. The rise in deaths has prompted the mayor and police chief to take action to make streets safer, reports KCBS.

The latest fatality occurred Tuesday evening when a 38-year-old man dashed across busy Van Ness Avenue next to City Hall on a red light and was hit by a motorist. It was the sixth pedestrian death in less than a month.

Police Chief Greg Suhr said traffic enforcement will increase as 300 new officers hit the streets. Suhr said he wants the public to understand that there will be consequences for those who ignore traffic laws.

Suhr has already sat down with his captains and would like to see officers dressed in plain clothes on intersections and crossing streets, but he also wants to see police issuing tickets for those who break the rules.

Almost everyone in San francisco J walks. All they have to do is obey the signs and use the crosswalks.

SF is a Sanctuary City the Mayor Ed Lee, and Chief Greg Suhr really care? Like the city hasn't had a history of IA's gunning down families in cold blood? You don't enforce Federal Immigration laws. But a couple of deaths of Pedestrian's make the news and you're so heart broken? What a load of crap! These are the same group of people, who don't deport child molesters, sex-slave traders, DUI illegals who kill etc. etc. What a JOKE! How about telling people to obey the freaking LAW? Yea extra Traffic Enforcement? But the same resources could be used for deportation! Of Lawbreakers. These same people shed no tears when US Citizens are brutally murdered by Illegal Aliens.
