The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a pedestrian safety operation on Monday, July 28, on Highway 101 in the area between the D River Wayside and S 5th Street.
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 9 a.m. and noon. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone.
Motorists and pedestrians are cautioned to be alert for the right of way issues that affect each of them. Pedestrians need to exercise due caution when stepping into marked or unmarked crosswalks.
Motorists need to remember to allow for ample time and distance in order to stop safely when approaching a crosswalk.
Funding for the pedestrian safety operations is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation.
