in Community/Featured/Headline

“Trouble spots” along the El Camino Real corridor in San Carlos will be the focus of a pedestrian safety enforcement operation by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Deputies will look for traffic violations made by both drivers and pedestrians, the sheriff’s office said, with special attention directed toward speeding, illegal turns, failing to stop for signs and signals, failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and other dangerous violations.

Additionally, enforcement will also focus on pedestrians crossing the street illegally or failing to yield to drivers who have the right of way.

The heightened pedestrian safety enforcement operation on Jan. 22 “will be first of many scheduled for the foreseeable future,” the sheriff’s office said.
