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.


2:30am       Alemany & Geneva                   Evading an Officer
Ingleside Officers Colclough and Stoffel were on routine patrol when they observed a late model Mercedes make an illegal U-Turn on Alemany. The officers pulled up behind the Mercedes, activated their emergency lights, and attempted to stop the vehicle. Instead of stopping, the vehicle kept driving away for several blocks before finally stopping on the 1300 Block of Cayuga Avenue. The driver was subsequently ordered out of the car. A computer check revealed he was an unlicensed driver. He was cited for that violation as well as several vehicle code violations. Report number: 170347172

7:02pm       Unit Blk. Wilder                       Auto Burglary
Two alert citizens helped police arrest a burglar. The witnesses said they were parking their vehicle when they noticed a man walking down the street, talking on his cellphone, while peering into parked vehicles. They thought it was suspicious and when the suspect noticed the couple, he turned around and walked away. However, he returned a short time later and crouched down next to a parked Scion, took out a tool, and broke out the Scion’s passenger window. The suspect then took out a backpack and started walking away. The couple called police and Ingleside Officers Dito, Garza, Hardy, and Scot arrived on scene and found the suspect, with the stolen backpack on the 500 block of Bosworth. He was identified by the couple and was arrested at the scene and taken to Ingleside Station for booking. The backpack, containing school projects and supplies, was returned to its owner.
