Police in Ohio's capital cite dozens of pedestrians for jaywalking, drivers for illegal turns

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, May 9, 2014 4:03 PM EDT

Columbus police have cited dozens of pedestrians for jaywalking and more than 100 drivers for traffic infractions including illegal turns after the first week of a crackdown.

Lt. Brent Mull of the department's traffic bureau says the goal is reminding both pedestrians and drivers to work together to improve safety.

The department said Friday it issued 38 tickets to pedestrians at $97 each mostly for jaywalking and another 92 pedestrian warnings.

The department also issued 131 tickets to drivers at $120 each along with 29 warnings.

Many drivers were cited for illegal turns downtown at an intersection often crowded with pedestrians.

Mull said the department hopes those who were cited and warned will walk and drive safely throughout the city, not just downtown.
