Police in St. Pete will be looking traffic violators starting today. Times files.

St. Petersburg police will be out in force this morning looking for traffic violators along the Fourth Street N corridor.

The Police Department issued a news release about the enforcement action late Sunday night that said the agency had "distributed thousands of warnings and educational pamphlets over the last four months" about it.

The news release said special enforcement teams will be "out in the busiest areas of the city handing out citations to violators and making sure everyone obeys the laws of the road, for the safety of our pedestrians, cyclists, as well as our motorists."

Police said the special operation will begin at 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. in the area of Fourth Street, between Fifth Avenue N and 22nd Avenue N. Officers will target people who ignore bike and pedestrian traffic rules. Pedestrian and bicycle citation fines are $62.50.

Police said the enforcement is part of a Florida Department of Transportation grant through the USF for Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety.
