CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- When a pedestrian steps into a crosswalk in Arizona, that pedestrian has control of that crosswalk until they cross over the median or double yellow lines. Unfortunately, many drivers appear to be unaware that this law even exists.

[WATCH: Chandler drivers Caught Misbehaving during pedestrian crosswalk sting]

With grant money from the Governors Office of Highway Safety, the Chandler Police Department conducted a pedestrian safety traffic sting where drivers were put to the test to see if they follow state law. Unfortunately, many of them failed.

I did a ride along with Chandler Police Traffic officers as they pulled over drivers and educated them on the law of pedestrian safety.

I agree with you. I wish someone would follow him around with a camera and report on everything he does. No need to film these people and put them on blast for minor traffic violations. A real jerk move in my opinion.
