LCPD Safety Enforcement operation

Lincoln City Police will conduct a pedestrian safety operation between NE 10th and 15th streets from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. Aug. 16.

LCPD hopes to educate drivers and pedestrians about right-of-way laws. Warning signs will be posted outside the safety operation zone during the hours of 10 a.m. -1 p.m. while the decoy pedestrian crosses Highway 101 at crosswalks.

LCPD last conducted a pedestrian safety operation on July 21, where 27 citations or warnings were issued for breaking crosswalk laws and other traffic violations.

“The members of the Lincoln City Police Department are dedicated to enhancing the safety of our citizens and guests of the city,” LCPD Lt. Jeffrey Winn said. “These safety operations are conducted in an effort to reduce the potential for injuries or death to pedestrians in our city.”

OREGON PEDESTRIAN, BICYCLE AND DRIVER RULES

Police will be focusing on:

ORS 811.028: Failure to stop and remain stopped for pedestrian

ORS 811.020: Passing stopped vehicle at crosswalk

ORS 811.025: Failure to yield to pedestrian on sidewalk

Lincoln City Police utilize grant funds provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Impact to make safety enforcement operations like this one possible.

  1. I stopped for a family to cross the hwy at Ocean terrace only one lane and people went all the way around me on the right and almost hit them. About 15 vehicles some work trucks with trailers. I also have watched people just walk out into the street in between crosswalks so they need to be held accountable for their actions also.

  2. Yes Rick best idea I have herd on this so far. I have had and seen pedestrians busy looking at there phones texting step out into unsigned crosswalks without looking with cars locking up there brakes close collisions. (maybe they should use some of the trillion $$$$ they just passed for this to run country more broke!!!!!!!!!!!! )

  3. The last time I stopped for a pedestrian, I felt bad for the older gentleman,
    an SUV blew by me in the left lane, followed by a giant motorhome, also
    in the left lane. I just knew he was going to get smacked and I’d have felt
    guilty for letting him think it was safe to use a crosswalk.
    I think we need a little more than random attempts at pedestrian safety,
    like robo drones that attack from the sky when idiots who shouldn’t be on
    the road to begin with, are on the road.

  4. There are too many pedestrians hit in Lincoln City. If we closed the unsignaled crosswalks between signaled intersections, It would reduce vehicle/pedestrian incidences dramatically. As a pedestrian, I do not cross a main highway without a signal to stop traffic. Why don’t we use common sense to improve safety?
