PEDESTRIAN CROSSING LAW BEING IGNORED TOO OFTEN : OPP 4/16/2018 8:06:25 AM
Do you wait for pedestrians to fully cross the road before you keep driving? The law changed two years ago, but still, not all drivers are aware. Recently the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP held a two week blitz that wrapped up April 8th. Constable Shawn Peever explains the law.
Peever says it was disappointing to see so many drivers not follow the law, especially one that was created to keep pedestrians and crossing guards safe.
Peever adds that even though the targeted enforcement has ended, officers will continue to monitor crossovers and crosswalks throughout the detachment area to ensure the safety of pedestrians and all road users.
