Pedestrian Safety Operation In Lincoln City

Pedestrian Safety

UPDATE: The Lincoln City Police Department announced that they have cancelled their Pedestrian Safety Operation in Lincoln City scheduled to take place tomorrow due to operational needs. We will let the public know as soon as another date for the pedestrian safety operation is announced.

 

The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Wednesday, August 30,2017. The safety operation will occur near Hwy 101 and North 21st Street between the hours of 12:00PM and 4:00PM

The primary focus of the operation is to raise pedestrian safety awareness. 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. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone, the day before and the day of the operation.

The Lincoln City Police Department is dedicated to enhancing the safety of both the 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 our city.

Funding for the pedestrian safety operations is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation.
