The city of Glendale created a new strategy to establish a secured environment for both drivers and pedestrians (“Stings go on, sans bunny,” April 2).
According to the article, “Glendale Police Officer Tom Broadway dressed in a pair of shorts and T-shirt, a far cry from the furry Easter costume that he sported a day earlier. On Thursday, he walked back and forth at two crosswalks, one lighted and marked, the other not.”
The city’s police chose two intersections in which the number of accidents is high. It is amazing that, even though the officer dressed as a giant rabbit, he was nearly hit by drivers several times. During this time, officers issued 64 citations for drivers failing to yield. However, the numbers of citations were less than the day before with the officer in rabbit attire.
