Folsom police to keep an eye on pedestrian-related wrongs

Folsom police will be targeting pedestrian-related violations for most of the rest of the summer.

During July, August and September, officers will be watching for violations committed by both walkers and motorists when it comes to pedestrian safety. Citations will be written for violations in an effort to create safety and encourage walking, police said in a press release.

Tips from Folsom police for drivers:

• Yield to pedestrians when turning

• Watch for pedestrians in crosswalks

• Don't block crosswalks

• Don't pass cars stopped for pedestrians

• Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks

• Come to a complete stop at stop signs

• Scan the sides of the road for pedestrians

Tips for pedestrians:

• Look up

• Don't assume you are being seen

• Pay attention

• Don't walk and text

• Look both ways before crossing

• Use marked crosswalks

• Always walk facing traffic
