SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco police and the California Highway Patrol joined forces Wednesday morning to help nab speeding drivers on The Embarcadero.

The goal was not necessarily to hand out tickets, but more about raising awareness, for drivers to slow down and yield to pedestrians.

The speed limit on The Embarcadero is 30 miles per hour, but law enforcement officials said people often see it as a modified expressway, often traveling at much faster speeds.  At Green Street and The Embarcadero, law enforcement officers on motorcycles were lined up, waiting to nab speeders going 40, 45 MPH and up.

“Normally in the morning, it’s the North Bay people that take The Embarcadero that come by,” said San Francisco Police Officer Daniel Shiu. “They’re late to work or in a rush to get to work, so they tend to speed more in the morning time.”
