As part of a continuing effort to enhance pedestrian safety and driver awareness the Santa Barbara Police
Department, the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department, and California Highway Patrol will be conducting a
crosswalk directed patrol in the Santa Barbara and Goleta area. The enforcement operation will occur over
a two day period throughout various locations in the south coast area. The dates of the operation will be
Tuesday July 22, 2014 and Wednesday 23, 2014.
This detail is being conducted due to continued complaints of vehicles not yielding to pedestrians who are
in crosswalks and high pedestrian involved collision rates. Locations utilized will consist of both marked
and unmarked crosswalks. Unmarked crosswalks are often overlooked by drivers resulting in injury traffic
collisions. If you have any questions please contact Sergeant Mike McGrew.
