With the start of the new academic school year, University of Arizona Police Department will once again begin their “bicycle and pedestrian education and enforcement” campaign.
According to UAPD they will begin their operation on Monday Aug. 31 and continue throughout the month of September.
In the past officers have setup at stop signs around campus and stopped bicyclists who fail to stop or pedestrians who walk without a signal at stop lights.
Here’s a snippet from the announcement:
Every week day there are several thousand bicyclists, pedestrians, and vehicles on The University of Arizona campus. For your own safety and that of others, please familiarize yourself with all laws as they apply to bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists. Beginning August 31, 2015 and throughout the month of September, The University of Arizona Police Department will conduct a period of heightened education and enforcement directed at bicycle/pedestrian violations. We encourage your support and participation during the Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety and Education Campaign.
The Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety and Education Campaign is designed to educate community members on University regulations and enforce Arizona State laws related to bicycle and pedestrian traffic while also providing important tips for safeguarding bicycles against theft, and how to share the road with the Sun Link streetcar. The University of Arizona Police Department would like to remind everyone to be mindful of their surroundings and to obey all rules of the road.
