Fairfax County police have been busy handing out tickets to motorists and pedestrians violating traffic laws on Gallows Road.
Since the enforcement started in June, county police have handed out 175 tickets to motorists and pedestrians not abiding by traffic laws on Gallows Road by the Dunn Loring Metro station. Each ticket carries a $250 fine.
Lucy Caldwell, a spokeswoman with county police, said more than 540 motorists and pedestrians have been warned for either crossing outside crosswalks or failing to yield to pedestrians in crossing areas.
Caldwell said pedestrians are asked to veer in a slightly different route towards a crosswalk, which may take approximately three minutes longer to walk. The change in the cross pattern is due to construction around the Metro station.
Construction around the Metro station is expected to continue through the next four years.
