A8 L V i 01) ill Tl O By Andrea Lindgren News Editor As students rush from car to class, they sometimes forget the importance of being safe. Starting last week, many students received a harsh reminder to keep safe when the campus police department started issuing misdemeanor citations for jaywalking. Just like a traffic citation, a citation for jaywalking requires the student, faculty or even community member to either pay a fine or appear before a judge. Whether it seems inconvenient or not, whenever crossing lanes of traffic, a crosswalk must be used, explained Detective Liddiard of the campus police. It is also encouraged to use caution when walking through parking lots and construction areas on campus, as well. While pedestrians are required to use crosswalks, drivers must yield to them and failure to do so will result in a citation from campus police, as well as a fine. "Even if someone is out of a crosswalk, drivers must stop," Liddiard said. Campus police urge anyone walking or driving on campus to pay attention, be alert and to be aware of their surroundings. T With several struck pedestrians in the past month, concern over jaywalking has escalated. Campus police officers have begun citing offenders.

Active awareness By Brandt Whiting News Writter On the evening of Sept. 27, a pedestrian crossing 800 South, the road between the testing center and the free lot, was struck by a driver heading westbound along the street. Police said the student was wearing dark clothing and listening to his iPod. According to unnamed eyewitness, they heard a thud and saw him flying through the air. Pedestrians need to remember that they have responsibility for their own safety. Pedestrians cannot always rely on drivers to stop. The string were there more than two? of recent carpedestrian accidents here on campus attests to that. When walking in traffic areas, including parking lots, pedestrians need to be aware of their surroundings. They also need to remove distractions like headphones or anything that takes away from the ability to hear or see what is going on around them. Texting, though common, is not the only distraction facing drivers; anything that takes their eyes off the road even for a moment is a distraction that can lead to an accident and possibly a fatality. Ap plying make-up, eating, talking on the phone or focusing on an unruly child in the back seat are all examples of distractions. The split-second decision to take your eyes off the road can have lasting consequences for both driver and victim. The consequences of harming another human being and the thought of being responsible for the loss of life can be hard to bear. No text is worth that possibility. Drivers need to remember to be aware and alert at all times. Whether in the car, walking or biking, active awareness is critical; being aware of ones surroundings may save a life.
