The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Tuesday, August 19th, on Hwy 101 in the area between N 6th Street and N 14th Street.
The primary focus of the operation is to raise pedestrian safety awareness. With the use of a decoy pedestrian, the Lincoln City Police Department hopes 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 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone.
The members of your Lincoln City Police Department are dedicated to enhancing the safety of both the citizens and guests of the city. The safety operations are conducted in an effort to reduce the potential of injuries or death to pedestrians in our city.
Funding for the pedestrian safety operations is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation.
