Traffic Safety Enforcement Operations Plan for San Francisco with OTS Grant

The San Francisco Police Department will conduct Traffic Safety Enforcement Operations on May 4th, 8th, 16th and 26th with a focus on bicycle and pedestrian safety. Over the past three years, the department has identified areas where significant numbers of pedestrian and bicycle-related collisions have occurred and responded by deploying additional officers to those areas in an effort to prevent deaths and injuries. Special attention will be given to Focus on the Five violations: excessive and unsafe speed, unsafe turns, failure to stop for signs and signals, failure to yield to pedestrians in cross walks, as well as any other dangerous violation.

San Francisco is committed to eliminating traffic deaths on our streets by 2024 as part of Vision Zero SF. Vision Zero SF is our city’s commitment to prioritize safe streets for everyone.

Bicycle and pedestrian fatalities are rising in California as more people use these non-motorized means of transportation. In 2013, California witnessed 701 pedestrians and 141 bicyclists killed, accounting for more than 28 percent of all traffic fatalities.

All riders are reminded to always wear a helmet – those under 18 years of age must wear helmets by law. Pedestrians should cross the street only in marked or unmarked crosswalks at corners. All motorists are reminded to be mindful of others who share the road.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


There are no arrests to report.

A woman, home with her husband, heard her front doorbell ring. She told Ingleside Officers Hornstein and Burke, she went to the front door and looked through the small window and saw two men she didn’t know. The men, apparently, not noticing the homeowner turned around and left the front door. About 5 minutes later she and her husband heard a loud noise from the front door. The husband, picked up a stick, and ran to the front door, opened it, and chased the two men down the stairway and down the block to a waiting sedan. The men got into the car which sped off north on Athens and then east on Rolph St. (Captain’s Note: It’s never safe to chase suspects away if your home. If you believe someone is trying to break into your home call 911, stay behind your locked door, and tell the potential burglars you’re calling the police) Report number: 170341613
