“Dear PoPville,

Thought you might want to make readers aware of how serious MPD will be taking this campaign over the next few days and the weekend.

Police will be out in force in Georgetown, 14th/U ST area and other areas around H st and Eastern Market.

Tickets will cost $75-$250 in DC depending on the type of crosswalk (signalized or un-signalized) This enforcement will go city wide and hopefully make DC a safer place to walk and bike.

Police will be ticketing drivers. Note there will be lots of enforcement this weekend, similar to what people saw with those traffic safety “checkpoints” that you posted about a few weeks back. Police want drivers to ensure they are driving safe in this city full of bikers and pedestrians.”
