In Fair Lawn, New Jersey, police officers recently targeted those motorists who endangered pedestrians as a part of a month-long campaign to increase pedestrian safety. The effort resulted in 142 drivers being cited for a panoply of offenses. The biggest offense by far was cellphone usage, with 43 of those types of citations being issued. Six people were even taken into custody once it was discovered that they had an outstanding warrant out for their arrest. Plainclothes officers were used to catch pedestrian safety violations.
