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