San Francisco Authorities Can't Explain Crosswalk Laws Correctly

San Francisco Authorities Can't Explain Crosswalk Laws Correctly

San Francisco’s officials do not, apparently, know how to cross the street. That’s according to a report at SFGate.com, where a simple question as to whether or not pedestrians can be ticketed for entering the crosswalk as the countdown clock begins “shockingly” elicited an incorrect response from a spokesman for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

The official said that pedestrians “can start whenever they want.” 

In fact, as sfgate.com noted, citing Commander Mikail Ali of the San Francisco Police Departmentnoted, pedestrians “may only enter the crosswalk when the walking person is illuminated in white lights” and can finish crossing only if they “have already entered the crosswalk when the countdown begins.”

Later, the city official issues a statement acknowledging his error: “I passed on wrong information…I’ll leave it at that.”

Californians’ crosswalk behavior was lampooned by Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in the Sony Pictures film Friends with Benefits.
