SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Police Department announced Saturday that officers will step up pedestrian safety enforcement operations.

Police have mapped out locations throughout San Diego where pedestrian- and bicycle-involved collisions have occurred over the last three years, and will focus routine traffic patrols on known "trouble spots," according to a statement from the department.

Special targeted patrols will also be deployed to crack down on drivers who violate traffic laws, as well as pedestrians who cross the street illegally or fail to yield when traffic has the right-of-way.
