As a part of the “Stop for Me” campaign, the Saint Paul Mayor’s Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities (MACPD) partnered with the Saint Paul Police Department and the Saint Paul Neighborhood Network to produce a public service announcement urging motorists to be alert for pedestrians with disabilities or limited mobility. “Stop for Me” is a campaign to improve safety for people who use Saint Paul’s sidewalks and streets.
On April 10, 2017, members of the MACPD joined Mayor Coleman, Police Chief Todd Axtell, and Ramsey County Sheriff Jack Seier held a press conference to urge motorists to pay attention while driving.
