Interesting post today on the Everett Police Facebook page on how they are using undercover cops to target drivers who do not yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. Here’s what they had to say.

From the Everett Police Department Facebook page.

As part of our ongoing summer safety campaign, undercover officers recently worked several locations along Broadway Ave in North Everett on a sting targeting vehicles that failed to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks. 21 drivers were stopped and 19 infractions were given. Several drivers were also cited for cell phone violations.

We strongly believe in public safety and protecting pedestrians in crosswalks! On July 26th, an 11 year-old boy was struck by a car as he crossed Colby Ave at 37th St in a crosswalk. Fortunately, the boy only suffered minor injuries but drivers must remain alert for pedestrians, share the road, and not drive distracted!

We will continue our summer safety campaign targeting drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians, pedestrians failing to use crosswalks, and bicyclists who violate the rules of the road.
