Sitting on a sizzling leather seat under a scorching September sun, Sgt. Chris Jacobson of the Lodi Police Department watched closely as one of his cadets crossed the street at the intersection of West Lodi Avenue and Rose Street on Thursday afternoon.

The cadet, clad in street clothes, was being used as bait in a traffic sting. Drivers who yielded to him were allowed to continue on their respective journeys. Those who didn’t were pulled over and ticketed. The department’s traffic unit set up the sting at three separate intersections during the operation.

    I believe folks talking on the phone and/or texting while driving is a much greater threat to safety than pedestrians crossing Lodi Avenue or Ham Lane.
    I think a sting focused on nailing drivers on the phone would do more for safety than this cross walk trap.

    I have to agree with Kevin... I was walking downtown yesterday and some yahoo driving his truck too fast and almost hit me and two other people when driving carelessly as if no one was in view of the road... he did not even look back... wish he had gotten a ticket.

    Apparently Brett would prefer to have more kids struck by vehicles in the Lodi area. Meth is a problem in lodi, but it isn't the ONLY problem.

    Another poorly written article. How about a little research on the law? Too much reading involved in that?.

    Seriously? This was a priority of LPD? This is all about revenue. If they really wanted to make it safer for our citizens, they'd do something about the HUGE meth problem and escalating gang violence. Get your priorities straight!!!
