According to Sgt. Anthony Aquino, drivers have complained that HPU students disregard the crosswalk signals, especially at the shuttle pick-up location adjacent to Beretania Street. Motorists say that students are crossing the street so late that they don’t have time to make the right turn onto Beretania before the light turns red.

By law, motorists are required to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk if they are within their half of the road. In turn, pedestrians can use the crosswalk as long as the signal says walk, but once the red hand starts flashing, they may not enter the crosswalk.

HPD is seeking cooperation of HPU students, staff, and faculty because they do not wish to continue writing tickets for offenses. But they will so as long as the problem persists. The majority of pedestrian accidents and fatalities are a result of jaywalking, Aquino said.
