Heads up, Rosslyn. Arlington County PD will be out in force to hand out jaywalking and other enforcement tickets near the intersections of North Moore and Lynn Streets with Wilson Boulevard today.
It's all part of the Street Smart campaign from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, which is "aimed at encouraging safe, proper yielding to pedestrians and drivers alike," according to a statement from MWCOG.
A number of local officials — including members of the Arlington county board — will make presentations encouraging pedestrian, cyclist and driver safety beginning at 12:30 p.m. along Wilson Boulevard.
But more importantly for Rosslyn workers, Arlington police will be stepping up pedestrian safety enforcement during two time frames tomorrow: between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. This enforcement will happen at "a notoriously busy intersection" in Rosslyn, which we hear is the intersection of North Lynn and Wilson Boulevard.
So keep an eye out, drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike. If you're not careful, today could be the day you get a ticket.
