The past few months we’ve had at least three jaywalkers/jayjoggers blow across Masonic on the north side of Oak against the ped signal only to end up getting hit and injured by a vehicle.
Therefore, Park Station had a pedestrian-focused enforcement action* a few days ago.
Here you go, here’s a Stanfoo grad hopping down the bunny trail – right past a cop and into traffic about 15 seconds too late (assuming you’re legally allowed to run into a crosswalk, even with a green**):
Guess what – no ticket for her. Not even a warning. (Dude just told me he was specifically out there to hand out tickets, oh well. Maybe he was saving his energy for more flagrant violations, IDK)
Oh, here we go – here’s a ped red citation on the south side of Oak:
On It Goes…
*I’ll tell you, I’ve never seen an SFPD ped-only enforcement action in all my quarter-century plus on the Streets of San Francisco. I’ve seen numerous cyclist-focused and driver-focused actions, but never for peds.
**There are nuances here. Is this crosswalk part of a “wilderness trail” ala Masonic at nearby Fell? I know not.
