Police crosswalk enforcement focuses on Glisan Street crossing
Portlands Bureau of Transportation and the Portland Police Bureau will conduct a crosswalk enforcement action from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Wednesday at the crossing of Northeast Glisan Street at Northeast 78th Avenue.
The crosswalk is popular with those walking to nearby TriMet bus stops, the Montavilla Community Center and Vestal Elementary School.
During the enforcement action, a pedestrian decoy will cross the street and police will look for drivers who fail to stop for pedestrians. The enforcement also will focus on people who jaywalk. Both drivers and jaywalkers could be issued warnings or citations by police.
