BOULDER - Following a campaign to educate commuters about safety, Boulder Police have been taking their initiative a step further this week.
Officers have been patrolling heavily used intersections and issuing citations to both pedestrian and auto offenders.
“We have cars that are moving anywhere between 25, 40, 45 miles-per-hour,” Boulder Police Officer Marcus Askins said. “They may not be able to see the pedestrian in enough time.”
It’s not only motorists that need to pay attention.
“It’s not looking down at your cell phone as your crossing the crosswalk, it’s paying attention to what’s going on around you too because cars hurt," Askins said.
People traveling through Boulder can expect to see patrols like these continue, especially during the school year.
