The Delaware State Police will be vigorously enforcing traffic and pedestrian violations from April 14, 2015 to April 19 2015. Troopers will be targeting areas where there is a high frequency of pedestrian fatalities and injury accidents as seen in the past several months. The areas we will target include: Kirkwood Highway, Limestone Road, Chestnut Hill Road and I-95. The hours of operation will be between 4:00 p.m. and midnight with an increase patrols from Thursday to Sunday. Troopers will be looking for any and all pedestrian violations which include: not crossing at designated crosswalks, walking without a light and walking while under the influence of alcohol. Troopers will also be targeting any aggressive driving behavior in the designated locations. The Delaware State Police will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety initiative as part of our on-going efforts to reduce pedestrian fatalities and personal injury accidents.
“Troopers remind pedestrians to use caution and safety when walking on or near roadways. If you must cross a roadway utilize designated cross walks and make sure to look left, then right, then left again before proceeding. When walking near a roadway always make yourself visible to drivers by wearing bright or light colored clothing and reflective materials. Pedestrians that are walking at night must carry a flashlight for added safety.”
