NHP plans increased enforcement for pedestrian violations

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – In light of the recent accidents involving pedestrians who have been struck and killed, and the fact that pedestrian-related crashes in Douglas, Lyon and Washoe counties increased in 2011, troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol will concentrate their enforcement efforts on pedestrian and crosswalk violations over the next several weeks, according to a statement from NHP spokesman Chuck Allen.

Troopers will be at various intersections in Northern Nevada specifically looking for drivers who do not yield for pedestrians wishing to cross at crosswalks and identifying pedestrians who cross a street unsafely or by jaywalking, Allen said.
