Pedestrian Safety Operation in Redmond Today


Today, the Redmond Police Department is conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation in several areas. Redmond Police Lieutenant Gary DeKorte says previous operations have been very successful. "We go through set parameters, and we select a crosswalk at a busy area with the city. And we have a decoy, who's trained when traffic approaches, to safely step into the crosswalk and attempt to use the walk. The object is to see if whether people will stop properly as they are supposed to, for people in marked crosswalks." DeKorte says they will be at the school zone at Rimrock and Deschutes from 9 a.m. until noon. Then they'll move the operation to 6th Street and Glacier from noon until 3 p.m. Depending on the circumstances, if you fail to stop for a pedestrian, you could get a warning or a ticket, with a price tag beginning at about $230.
