Need to catch red-light run­ners

The Fresno Bee - - Opinion -

Fresno needs more traf­fic en­force­ment to de­crease the num­ber of red light and jay­walk­ing vi­o­la­tions that oc­cur in the city.

Ev­ery day, there are nu­mer­ous red light and jay­walk­ing vi­o­la­tions and there are no of­fi­cers in sight to catch these traf­fic vi­o­la­tors. This is why Fresno has so many ac­ci­dents caused by red light and jay­walk­ing vi­o­la­tions.

If Fresno PD wants to make the city’s roads safer, they need to send more of­fi­cers to busy in­ter­sec­tions, and is­sue ci­ta­tions to the traf­fic vi­o­la­tors. An­other ben­e­fit to in­creas­ing en­force­ment is in­creased rev­enue for the city with­out hav­ing to tax law-abid­ing cit­i­zens.
