The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Monday, July 28, on Hwy 101 in the area between “D” River Wayside and South 5th Street (U.S. Bank).
With the use of a decoy pedestrian, police officers hope to raise awareness of drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of pedestrian right of way laws. The operation will be conducted between the hours of 9:00 AM and Noon. Enforcement warning signs will be posted well in advance, at both ends of the pedestrian zones.
The Lincoln City Police Department is dedicated to enhancing the safety of both citizens and guests of our city. Safety and courtesy go hand in hand at every pedestrian crossing. But responsibility goes both ways – pedestrians must exercise due caution when stepping into marked or unmarked crosswalks, and motorists must allow ample time and distance to stop safely when approaching a crosswalk.
Funding for the pedestrian safety operations is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation.
