I understand what TDPD is trying to do. What about the people who do not use the crosswalks but demand that drivers stop. Where are their tickets? I was almost rear-ended during this "sting operation" because a pedestrian didn't use the crosswalk and popped out in front of me. I was doing less than the speed limit as was the car behind me. Do the crosswalk signals not work anymore? I would think that with the drug epidemic in this town there would be more energy and time put into fighting that than using police officers to set traps for people not stopping when someone wants to cross the street.
