LOPD will target pedestrian safety
The Lake Oswego Police Department will hold the Pedestrian Safety Enforcement program to raise awareness of safety issues on Friday.
This will be the sixth year that the LOPD will have targeted enforcement of crosswalks throughout the city in an effort to reduce the number of auto/pedestrian accidents in Lake Oswego.
The program will take place between 8 a.m. and noon on at the intersection of B Avenue and First Street in Lake Oswego. This intersection has a marked crosswalk and is located in a mixed business and residential area.
During the operation, drivers approaching intersections must stop and remain stopped until the pedestrian is safely on the sidewalk and out of the roadway. Violators will be stopped by police in the area of the violation. Citations will be issued with a base fine of $260.
