Dozens of drivers should have read our warning from last week ahead of traffic operations in Millbrae and San Carlos.
On Friday, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office headed out to collision hot spots in both cities and handed out 84 citations — 51 from Millbrae and 33 in San Carlos.
“Most of the violations were for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk,” the sheriff’s office said. “Other citations were also issued for cell phone related violations, failing to obey posted signs/markings, seatbelt violations, loud music from a vehicle, and mechanical violations.”
Deputies took every opportunity to educate drivers and pedestrians about safe practices during the operation, the sheriff’s office added.
