Enforcement action educates drivers at 43rd and Military

MPD's Capt. Sledge and Officer Carruth cite drivers for stop sign violations near the intersection of 43rd and Military. 
Metropolitan Police Department officers from the Second District recently issued warnings and tickets to drivers during a pedestrian safety enforcement action at the intersection of 43rd Street NW and Military Road NW. This "T" intersection is controlled by stop signs on all sides, and MPD's focus was on education. Officers issued 10 tickets or warnings for stop sign violations during a two-hour period during the afternoon of September 29.

The enforcement was operated by Captain Sledge and Officers Carruth, Jaeger, Deruvo, Holman and Coletti. The enforcement was observed by Ward 3 Pedestrian Advisory Council representative Eileen McCarthy and ANC 3E Commissioner Tom Quinn, both of whom noted that the presence of officers slowed down drivers.

Officers also helped a group of children cross the street safely.
