LAPD Operations West Bureau Pedestrian Safety Awareness Event NA10299gb

What:   
Pedestrian Traffic Safety Education
 
When:   
Thursday, November 18, 2010
6 a.m. -10 p.m. (News Conference at 9 a.m.)

Where:  
Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue (Northeast corner)
Los Angeles, California

Who:     
West Traffic Division (WTD), Community Traffic Safety Unit

Why:     
With the holidays fast approaching and more vehicular and pedestrian traffic on the roadway, WTD is putting on an educational event.  Due to a slight increase in vehicles striking pedestrians in the Department’s West Bureau, the event will focus on raising awareness for pedestrian safety.  Officers from WTD and Olympic Area will saturate the area and educate the community regarding traffic safety by providing pedestrian safety fliers to motorists, pedestrians and business owners in the area.              

A life like visual display will simulate a vehicle versus pedestrian traffic accident.

The focus will be on the following:

                *Obeying all pedestrian signals

                 *Crossing in marked/unmarked crosswalks

                *Looking 4 ways before crossing: left, right, in front and behind

                *Wearing light colored clothing during darkness

                *Making eye contact with drivers before crossing

Also, drivers should be cautious of the following:

                *Yielding to all pedestrians in the roadway

                 *Excessive speed

                 *Obeying all traffic signals

If you have any questions, please contact Sergeant Christopher Kunz at 213-473-0215 or Sergeant Rita Woodle at 213-473-0222.
