The Goleta Police Department issues six citations to those who did not yield to pedestrians at crosswalks.
The operation was conducted at two different locations from noon to 1:00 p.m. on Thursday.
California law states that drivers must yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk, or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection. The fine for this violation can be up to $200.
The law also states that a vehicle may not pass another vehicle that has stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the street.
The fine for this violation is about $450.
Police hope that by conducting these operations on a regular basis, motorists will be more attentive and look for pedestrians.
