The Lincoln City Police Department (LCPD) will conduct a Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operation from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday between the 300 block of South Highway 101 and D River Wayside. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety-zone area.
Fines for failing to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk or for passing other cars stopped for a pedestrian are $260 each.
In a news release, LCPD said it is dedicated to enhancing the safety of 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 the city.
This operation is part of a series of enforcement actions taken by LCPD to raise awareness of drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of pedestrian right-of-way laws. Funding is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and the Oregon Dept of Transportation.
