Greetings Southern District Members,
During the month of March the Southern Police District officers responded to several traffic accidents. Many of the accidents involved pedestrians including a fatal accident on Howard Street. I personally responded too many of these scenes.
In response to these incidents I had my officers conduct traffic operations. These operations were focused on our most dangerous intersections. Citations were issued for speed, red light violations, failing to yield to pedestrians, and driving on a suspended or revoked license. The SFPD Traffic Company was also helpful in supporting the efforts of Southern Station.
As we approach the summer months we will continue to focus on traffic safety and educating the driving public to slow down, and especially look out for bicyclist and pedestrians.
