Police Issue Warnings During Traffic Enforcement

Police Issue Warnings During Traffic Enforcement
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Police Department's car pedestrian project is having an impact.

In the last week, officers have stopped more than 300 cars, bicycles and pedestrians.  They gave out 56 citations and 266 verbal warnings.

Police plan to continue the effort during next week's back-to-school speed zone enforcement.

"This year, we are going to concentrate our efforts on more of the pedestrian safety, bicyclists safety. I think it's great timing for us to be able to do that with the injuries that have occurred over the summer. We had a few pedestrian crashes in and around the schools last year.  And we just want to make sure that we get that message out to the kids and the parents dropping their kids off," Sioux Falls Police Lt. Troy Lubbers said.

With school back in session, police say all drivers need to give themselves extra time to slow down in school zones. 

They're also asking parents to sit down with their kids and take a look at the safe routes to school maps.
