Stung: Ingleside Station Cops Issue 123 Citations, Arrest 10 In Crosswalk Crackdown

Posted By on Wed, Jun 10, 2009 at 11:15 AM

Yesterday, SF Weekly noted that the police at San Francisco's Ingleside Station were planning a sting aimed at busting motorists who don't stop for pedestrians -- and the cops were even generous enough to list the intersections and times of day they'd be out stinging and busting.

Apparently, at least 123 San Franciscans do not read this Web page. Police -- who sent plainclothes officers waddling into the streets to act as pedestrians -- yesterday cited that many drivers who failed to stop. Additionally, 10 motorists were arrested for misdemeanors such as driving with a suspended license -- or no license at all. (SF Weekly covered an April pedestrian sting held by the Taraval Station cops at Sloat and Everglade.)

Tuesday's sting(s) were held at five intersections chosen based upon complaints levied by local denizens regarding maniacal drivers:

52 total stops were made at Mission and Highland;

35 stops were made at Alemany and San Juan;

24 stops were made at Geneva and London;

7 stops were made at Cortland and Anderson;

5 stops were made at Highway 280 southbound and Bosworth.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
