Enforcing Traffic Laws
Traffic laws exist to create order and ensure safety for everyone moving around San Francisco. By encouraging people to obey the rules of the road, law enforcement will help create safe, livable streets in San Francisco communities.
Don’t Block the Box
Almost half of all injuries to people walking occur in crosswalks. When drivers block crosswalks because they can’t clear an intersection in time, they put people walking at greater risk. Don’t Block the Box is a campaign to cite drivers who block intersections and prevent pedestrians from crossing safely.
Focus on the Five
Using multi-year collision data, the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) is focusing on enforcing the five violations that are most frequently cited in collisions with people walking. The goal is to have half their traffic citations be for these five violations. Monthly reports on the progress of the campaign can be found here.
Parking Control Officer Enforcement
The SFMTA Parking Control Officers (PCOs) enforce several parking violations to advance Vision Zero policy including double parking, blocking bicycle lanes, blocking sidewalks, and intersection gridlock. A map of Vision Zero e-citations can be seen here.
