CHP issues 45 citations in Sacramento auto-pedestrian decoy operation after several recent fatalities

The California Highway Patrol issued 45 citations during a decoy operation in Sacramento Saturday to enforce right-of-way laws. The purpose was to catch motorists not yielding to pedestrians in the crosswalk and jaywalkers.

"I think it was a huge success,' said Adrian Quintero, CHP Valley Division spokesman. "Even for our officers, just by being out there as pedestrians and seeing motorists not yielding to them- it was eye opener for all of us."

The CHP undertook the project after a slew of auto-pedestrian accidents occurred in Sacramento in recent months. From Aug. 1 to October 31 this year, a total of 10 pedestrians were killed and 15 were injured in crashes in east, north and south Sacramento.
