    Cops need to teach a particular race how to cross the street and use crosswalks. I don’t know what it is about blacks and crosswalks, it’s lile they’z alergic to them.

      Are you crazy all people do it, not just blacks. Get a life, this country will never move forward from this kind of stupidity.

    The City of Dallas is using this as an excuse to increase their $$$ in take! That’s all it is, a way for the city to bring in extra $$$$$.

    Well it’s not like the cops have anything to do, they do not patrol where I live. The crime is out of control, when we call the cops, they come hrs. later. .

    Great job cheif. . .

      Another reason to become a licensed concealed carrier.

      When seconds count the police are only minutes or hours away.

    Let the dallas cops go after the Illegals, like Farmers Branch, impound the cars, take what money they have and send them out of the country. . .

    Where I live it’s 90% Illegala and no one’s doing nothing about it. . . .

    Hell , I don’t even think I’m in Texas anymore. . . .

    Absolutely it’s about money. If they really cared about safety, they would be on Northwest Highway, Buckner Blvd and Mockingbird Lane among others ticketingt the tailgaters, red light runners, and speeders.
    This is just another Mary Suhm “Get the revenue” ploy. Dallas is sinking into the mire a little more every day

    CBS – please start checking these stories before publishing:

    “Effective immediately officers will star issuing citations to jaywalkers as part of an initiative to get people to use crosswalks.”

    Star issuing citations? I think you mean “Start” not “Star”. Spellcheck just lets you know if a word is misspelled, not if it is the right word to use.

  7. TLP says:

    They need to do that at Park Lane and Greenville as well. Someone is going to be killed. Seriously!

  8. Jay says:

    “Effective immediately officers will star issuing citations to jaywalkers as part of an initiative to get people to use crosswalks.”

    Let me fix that for you:
    “Effective immediately officers will starT issuing citations to jaywalkers as part of an initiative to get MORE MONEY.”

    What a joke.

  9. ACAB says:

    Why should I cross in a crosswalk when none of the people driving will yield or stop anyway? Why don’t the police enforce that law at all?
