Stung: Ingleside Station Cops Issue 123 Citations, Arrest 10 In Crosswalk Crackdown

Categories: Crime, Law & Order
Yesterday, SF Weekly noted that the police at San Francisco's Ingleside Station were planning a sting aimed at busting motorists who don't stop for pedestrians -- and the cops were even generous enough to list the intersections and times of day they'd be out stinging and busting.

Apparently, at least 123 San Franciscans do not read this Web page. Police -- who sent plainclothes officers waddling into the streets to act as pedestrians -- yesterday cited that many drivers who failed to stop. Additionally, 10 motorists were arrested for misdemeanors such as driving with a suspended license -- or no license at all. (SF Weekly covered an April pedestrian sting held by the Taraval Station cops at Sloat and Everglade.)

Tuesday's sting(s) were held at five intersections chosen based upon complaints levied by local denizens regarding maniacal drivers:

52 total stops were made at Mission and Highland;

35 stops were made at Alemany and San Juan;

24 stops were made at Geneva and London;

7 stops were made at Cortland and Anderson;

5 stops were made at Highway 280 southbound and Bosworth.
