Police cite 20 drivers in pedestrian safety detail
Sherwood police issued 20 citations in two hours last week following a pedestrian safety enforcement operation at the intersection of Sherwood Boulevard and Southwest 12th Street.
The operation was in direct response to citizen concerns voiced during recent Sherwood City Council meetings and other complaints, according to Capt. Ty Hanlon, a Sherwood police spokesman.
Hanlon said the primary focus on Aug. 27 was on drivers not stopping and remaining stopped for pedestrians in a marked crosswalk.
The breakdown in citations is as follows:
13 citations for failing to stop and remain stopped for a pedestrian.
Five citations for unlawful use of a mobile communication device.
One citation for failure to use seat belt
One citation for operating a vehicle without a drivers license.Add a comment
