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.



3:46pm       23rdSt & Folsom                    Recovered Auto
Ingleside Officers Lee and Archilla were searching for a stolen vehicle being monitored, using GPS, by the owner. The officers spotted the car at 24th and Potrero and started following it as it drove slowly through the Mission. Soon, the officers were joined by a CHP unit that was also searching for the car. The CHP officer activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to pull over the driver. However, the driver didn’t pull over and started speeding through intersections on Bryant and other nearby streets. Fearing for public safety, the CHP officer turned off his siren and emergency lights but, along with Lee and Archilla, kept following the stolen car. A short time later the suspect collided with another vehicle at 23rd and Folsom. After the collision the driver and a passenger exited the stolen vehicle and attempted to escape in separate directions. The driver was apprehended by the CHP officer and a Mission District unit on the 3000 block of 22nd Street. Officers Lee and Archilla were able to apprehend the passenger on the 2500 block of Folsom Street. The driver was charged with auto theft, evading a police officer, driving without a license, burglary tools, illegal possession of a weapon, hit and run, and other crimes. His passenger was released to a parent. Report number: 170351543
