Police officers from Garwolin (Mazowieckie) showed a video of hitting a pedestrian on the lanes. “The driver didn’t even get out of the car afterwards,” they said.

The Poviat Police Headquarters in Garwolin published, as it reserved “as a warning”, a recording from Wednesday of hitting a pedestrian in Aleja Legionów.

– A woman who was hit by a vehicle when she was already on a pedestrian crossing informed the police about the incident. The victim was not seriously injured, but the fact that the driver did not even get out of the car made her decide to report the case to the police, the podkom. Malgorzata Pychner.

The officers began searching for the perpetrator. For this purpose, they secured monitoring. They also reached the owner of the vehicle, who was unable to determine who was using the car on that day, because his employees had access to it. Therefore, in accordance with applicable regulations, they imposed a fine of PLN 3,000 on the owner.

The Garwolin command said that although the new regulations (giving priority to pedestrians entering the lanes) seem clear, they “constantly intervene against people who disregard the applicable rules”.

In the first half of 2023, they intervened against 80 pedestrians who broke traffic regulations, mainly for crossing in a forbidden place or on a red light. The local traffic police intervened 662 times against drivers who committed traffic offenses in the area of ​​pedestrian crossings.

– 645 exceeded the speed limit in this place, and 17 committed other offenses threatening pedestrians, e.g. failure to give way to pedestrians entering or already on the crossing, as well as overtaking a vehicle on a pedestrian crossing – summed up Pychner.
