The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Wednesday September 12th. The safety operation will occur near Hwy 101 and South 29thth Street between the hours of 8:30AM and 12:30PM
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. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone, the day before and the day of the operation.
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 operation is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation.
