Montgomery County cops won't drivers to watch out for pedestrians.
Police in Montgomery County want drivers to pay more attention to pedestrians. And if they don't... it's going to cost them.
Starting today, county police will conduct a series of "stings" throughout the month. Officers from the traffic division will go to heavily traveled intersections with marked crosswalks, and if they spot a vehcile that ignores or puts a crossing pedestrian in danger, they will issue citations to drivers. The officers themselves will dress in bright clothing and cross streets, and if a driver comes close to hitting them, they'll get a ticket.
The police department says they are planning on conducting several of these stings throughout the month.
