The second of four pedestrian safety campaigns will take place today at Norton and 8th Street in Bend. Sergeant Tom Pine with Bend Police says they really don't like to call them a "sting;" it's more of an awareness campaign: “I think they're very effective, actually. And I think if you look at our local media and you hear the discussion that happens on the social forums and stuff, it generates a lot of comments and they're not necessarily in favor or necessarily against, but just the fact that they generate so muchattention, brings to people's mind the fact that pedestrian safety is an issue in our community." Pine says signs will be posted to notify motorists of the operation. Those violating pedestrian safety laws will be stopped and given a warning or citation with fines up to $297. The safety campaign will run between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on today.
