PAUL POLICE DEPARTMENT), OFFICER WALKING ACROSS CROSSWALK
October can be a dangerous month when it comes to crosswalk safety due to a decrease in daylight hours and visibility. It's one of the reasons St. Paul Police and Minnesota Department of Transportation traffic safety officials spent Tuesday morning along Rice Street, monitoring how many motorists stop for pedestrians who were crossing the street. In just two hours, they issued 14 citations and three warnings for failure to yield to pedestrians. Cmdr. Jeremy Ellison with the St. Paul Police Department said many drivers don't know that Minnesota state law considers every intersection a crosswalk. "We're out here to slow drivers down and get them to pay attention as they are driving. They should always actively be scanning the corners to see if there's a pedestrian waiting to cross or not," he said. So far this year, there have been 153 pedestrians and 87 bicyclists hit in St. Paul . Statewide, there have been 26 pedestrians killed in 2017. That's up compared to 2016.
