Watch out for 'PEST'...

'PEST' has nothing to do with bugs, but alot to do with how and when you cross a street. Do it wrong. You could get a ticket.

The Austin Police Department Highway Enforcement Command will be creating a Pedestrian Enforcement Safety Team, also known as PEST, to conduct a pedestrian initiative through Nov. 5.



They said the goal is to educate the community on pedestrian laws and to conduct enhanced enforcement operations. Police said they will choose locations based on crash data analysis.



Pedestrian violations include:



  • Pedestrian crossing at point other than crosswalk

  • Disregard pedestrian control device

  • Solicitation by pedestrian

  • Pedestrian crossing where prohibited. For example, MoPac and Interstate 35.

  • Pedestrian in the roadway
