The AAPD is currently in the midst of a Crosswalk Ordinance Enforcement Campaign. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the ordinance. I think it's good to yield the right of way to pedestrians who are waiting to cross at marked crosswalks. And after a year or so of enforcement of the law, I see more motor vehicles yielding to pedestrians. That said, there are still some spots where I routinely see cars fail to yield to pedestrians, notably the stretch of Huron between Fletcher and State. Unfortunately, this is not one of the targeted crosswalks on the AAPD's enforcement campaign.
By biggest criticism of the ordinance, is more of an issue with how the city communicates with its citizens in this post-newspaper age. How do we get the word out about our new ordinance to all the folks that live here, and to the numerous folks who commute here for work everyday?
