Crossing The Law

A silver Toyota Camry cruised through the blinking yellow light at the intersection of Seventh and Washington streets in Ann Arbor shortly after 8 a.m. today. Normally that's not a problem. But the fact that a pedestrian was waiting in the rain to cross at the marked crosswalk meant the woman in the car just violated the city's new pedestrian safety ordinance, which requires motorists to stop for pedestrians within or approaching crosswalks. "She's getting a ticket," Ann Arbor Police Officer Trudy Sahr said after shifting her unmarked patrol car into gear and catching up to the Camry, headed southbound on Seventh. Read the story.
