Dont the sheriff have better things to do than stopping pedestrans how about using that time to catch drunk drivers and people selling drugs.Also you can use the money to help drug prevention classes for kids going to school.

For the most part, it's volunteers who do this, while a couple of sheriff's stand by and cite the law breakers. It's a good thing to do. I used to help with this type of sting and now I am very aware of how many people don't stop for pedestrians. I see drivers speed past pedestrians trying to use a cross walk every day.

We regularly have pedestrian stings in Ashland since several students near the university and some other pedestrians near downtown have been killed in crosswalks. In fact, there were so many accidents and near-accidents near the university that the speed limit there was lowered to 25 mph and yellow crossing lights were installed to alert motorists to the fact that pedestrians were in the crosswalk. The pedestrian just pushes a button on the light pole and the yellow lights flash so the motorist has no excuse to say "I didn't see a pedestrian!" I have been stopped, waiting for a pedestrian to complete the crossing and have had cars pass me without slowing down, almost hitting the pedestrian! A lot of those motorists were talking on their idiot cellphones, and some of the pedestrians who were almost hit were also talking on their cellphones and didn't activate the flashing lights. Stupid people!
