Captain Steve Carmona, Patrol Commanding Officer, Foothill Division
Detective William Bustos, Officer-in-Charge Valley Traffic Division Detectives
Commander William Yarbrough, Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police

WHY:
In an effort to increase pedestrian safety in our City streets police officers will aggressively
enforce the State’s pedestrian safety laws, especially laws requiring drivers to yield to
pedestrian within crosswalks.

The State of California has a right-of-way law for pedestrians within crosswalks, either
marked or unmarked, which requires drivers to yield to pedestrians and exercise due care
for their safety. If stopped and found in violation, officers will issue citations to drivers.

The Los Angeles Police Department wants to remind motorists and pedestrians to be extra
cautious when driving or walking across the street at all times, especially during the
Thanksgiving weekend and throughout the holiday season.

CONTACT:
 For more information, please contact Media Relations at 213-486-5910, or Detective Bustos at 818-644-8021 or cell 213-841-9060.
