RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -It was an unlucky Friday the 13th for some drivers and pedestrians in Reno as the Reno Police Department handed out 57 citations as part of a pedestrian safety operation.

Reno police also gave four warnings.

Eight officers focused on areas that have the highest number of pedestrian-related crashes.

“We focused our efforts on drivers and pedestrians that were violating those laws which make it unsafe for pedestrians,” RPD said in a statement.

The Nevada Office of Traffic Safety provided the money for the pedestrian operation.
