Median Ordinance Enforced

FRESNO, Calif. Until Saturday, officers just handed out warning notices to people caught standing or sitting in the middle of busy roads. Police have issued six tickets so far.

The new ordinance officially went into effect, prohibiting anyone from loitering because of safety reasons.

Anyone caught standing on median islands will receive a misdemeanor citation, with a fine as much as $250.
