Mystery
groupseeks
to curb
bad drivers
By PAUL JACKSON
A mysterious group calling itself the
Ann Arbor Pedestrians' Association
wants local citizens to help police en-
force the traffic laws.
The association, which has no
headquarters, officers, dues, or
meetings, calls itself a "spontaneously

campus area asks pedestrians to record
the license plate number of any vehicle
seen breaking a traffic law along with
the time, place, and nature of the
violation on a form provided on the
back of the flyer. The form is to be
mailed to the Ann Arbor Police when
completed.

police to "keep track of the violations
on a computer, perhaps sending letters
to those who are reported for an ex-
cessive number of violations."
The flyers have been on the streets
for at least a month, but Ann Arbor
Police Capt. Kenneth Klinge said none
of the violation records have been sent
to his department.
"WE'RE WILLING to work with any
group, but we're not familiar with (the
pedestrian's association," Klinge said.
"I'd be glad to have them meet with me
and set something up."
According to Ann Arbor Police Sgt.
Arthur Hughes, anonymous citizen
reports are not sufficient grounds for
legal action. "If a citizen wanted to file
a report and get a warrant filed through
the city attorney's office, he could do
that," Hughes said. In order for such a
case to be prosecuted, Hughes said, the
