The roads are about to get a lot more orderly (and hopefully a lot safer in the process). This month, the Philadelphia police announced that they would crack down on traffic violations by increasing police presence on the city’s streets. This means that all road users – drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians alike – will be held accountable for their dangerous behavior. The Police Department’s announcement comes about four months after the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities (MOTU) unveiled their “It’s road safety, not rocket science” PSA campaign to urge people to be safe when navigating the streets by their chosen mode of transportation.
