Do you slow down or stop for pedestrians? Police want to make sure you do. Friday, they put drivers in Sparks to the test.
Police officers walked back and forth across Pyramid Way and Prater Way to see how many cars would yield to them -- they say 42 didn't.
The Sparks Police Department says drivers must slow down or stop if a pedestrian is on their half of the road.
For those that didn't do what they're supposed to, cops were on hand to chase them down. They got tickets of at least $145.
A news release stated: "Citations included an additional 25 violations such as no insurance and no driver's license."
