Pedestrian Stings Begin

On Monday we posted a blog about the Chicago Police announcing that they will start undercover stings at intersections to nab drivers who fail to stop for pedestrians. Apparently, the police wasted no time. The Chicago Tribune reports that the first sting happened yesterday at the intersection of Nagle Avenue and Peterson Avenue. Police ticketed 18 motorists who failed to stop or slow down for undercover pedestrians in the crosswalk. Ample warning was given. Warnings were posted on this blog and on the Chicago Department of Transportation website. The Chicago Department of Transportation website has actual locations and times of planned undercover stings. Click here to see the sting schedule. The City has announced that at least 50 sting operations are planned throughout the city until fall of this year.
