The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Friday, July 17 on Hwy 101 in the area South 3rd Street
With the use of a decoy pedestrian, police hope to raise awareness of drivers and pedestrians of their mutual obligations to watch out for each other. Drivers must be vigilant in spotting pedestrians as they begin their passage across a crosswalk, and pedestrians must be not assume that drivers can stop on a dime – which sometimes can cause rear-ender accidents. The operation will be conducted between 12noon and 3pm, Friday, July 17th. Warning signs on 101 will be posted at both ends of the pedestrian safety zones.
