Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels announced a citywide emphasis on pedestrian safety and stepped-up traffic enforcement after three pedestrians were struck crossing streets in two days, including the fatality of a city council deputy.

“Seattle police will crack down on drivers speeding or ignoring other laws at intersections. Officers also will be stopping jaywalkers and pedestrians who cross against traffic lights.”
