Police Want You To Pause For Pedestrians
Gainesville's Police Department is campaigning for drivers to take caution around crosswalks!
GPD was out patrolling heavily trafficked areas of town to make sure that people are yielding to pedestrians.
The department's goal is not to issue a lot of tickets, but to improve safety and save lives.
Each year an average of 140 pedestrians are injured in Gainesville and Florida has one of the highest rates of injury in the nation.
