RENO — Officers with the police Traffic Division issued 59 citations and 11 warnings during an operation Saturday in midtown Reno.

Police conducted the undercover operation in midtown, which has recently gone through a major redevelopment and several new businesses have moved into the area creating more vehicular and pedestrian traffic there. The majority of citations and warnings were for drivers failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. One driver was arrested due to having six outstanding warrants.

The Reno Police Department Traffic Division encourages operators of motor vehicles to slow down so they can see pedestrians. Police also encourage pedestrians to make sure it safe to cross the street before entering the roadway.

I do not see all that much problem with this. Seems like fewer and fewer people are walking. What I see as a problemi is bicycles. Riding on the wrong side of the street, riding on sidewalks, blowing thru stop signs, lane splitting,etc I would like to see some realistic enforcement there.
