Wilton Manors Criminal Lawyer Warns Against Jaywalking on Wilton Drive

leifertlaw April 12, 2009 Criminal Defense

Wilton Manors Criminal Lawyer, Brian S. Leifert has recently learned that Wilton Manors police will begin targeting Jaywalking. That’s right, Jaywalking. Wilton Manors police are taking the issue very seriously as a result of recent increases in pedestrian-related accidents on Wilton Drive which is home to the city’s main entertainment district.

Wilton Manors will be kicking off an enforcement and awareness campaign (“Pedestrian Safety Awareness Blitz”). The City will begin issuing jaywalking citations if the problem persists.

In all the years I have been a Broward criminal lawyer, I’ve never even seen what a jaywalking citation looks like. It’s evidently a rather serious problem in Wilton Manors. In the past year, four pedestrians have been injured and one was killed. Wilton Manors has already been successful in lowering the speed limit on Wilton Drive to 30 mph earlier this year.
