On February 23, 2012, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., officers from the Oxnard PD conducted a pedestrian safety enforcement operation. The operation was aimed at motorists who failed to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians walking within marked crosswalks as required by law.
The operation was conducted at the following intersections:  Bard Road at Justin Way, Fifth Street at E Street, Saviers Road at Hill Street, and Wooley Road at E Street. 
During the operation, a total of 42 vehicles were stopped. Citations were issued to 31 drivers for pedestrian right-of-way violations. An additional 11 citations were issued for various traffic related infractions. One vehicle was towed during the operation. 
The Oxnard PD will continue to conduct pedestrian safety enforcement operations of this type throughout the year. These operations are an effort to reduce the number of vehicle versus pedestrian crashes and to make our roadways and community safer.  We also remind people that motorists are required by law to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians walking within crosswalks. 
For any questions related to traffic enforcement, please contact Senior Officer Jamie Brown at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at
