Crosswalk Stings Resume With Nighttime Enforcement
After about a month hiatus, Chicago’s Crosswalk Enforcement Initiative program resumes with two night time enforcement events.
The Crosswalk Enforcement Initiative is a program run by the Chicago Department of Transportation in conjunction with the Chicago Police Department where undercover cops posing as pedestrians try to cross the street at an intersection.
If the driver does not come to a complete stop and allow the fake pedestrian to completely cross the street, the motorist can be ticketed and fined up to $500.
So please, make sure you drive safely, give pedestrians the brake and let them safely cross at all crosswalks and intersections.
Not only is it the law and the right thing to do, but it helps avoid expensive tickets.
Here are the dates:
Wednesday, October 26
7:30 p.m.– Division Street and Richmond Street
Thursday, October 27
7:30 p.m.– Augusta Boulevard and Hoyne Avenue
