Police watching for jaywalkers

FULLERTON — An increase in near-misses between motorists and jaywalkers in the downtown has prompted the Police Department to remind people that those crossing against traffic signals or outside crosswalks will be ticketed.
"As part of our downtown enforcement program, we have two motor officers on patrol and jaywalkers are taking up a good deal of their time, especially at night," Lt. Kevin Hamilton said.
"We want to make sure people know our police are watching to make people safe," Hamilton said.
The prohibition against jaywalking is in the California Vehicle Code, which states pedestrians may not cross a roadway between adjacent intersections controlled by traffic control signal devices.
