Jul 24, 2013

News-Register Staff

YAMHILL -- Police will conduct a pedestrian safety drill Friday, July 26, at the intersection of Highways 47 and 240 in downtown Yamhill.

A decoy will cross the street repeatedly between 1 and 5 p.m. Officers will be watching traffic to make sure drivers follow pedestrian safety laws by stopping to allow the decoy to cross.

The law requires drivers to stop from the time a person steps off the curb until he reaches the opposite curb.

This is the first of three pedestrian safety drills Yamhill Police are planning this summer, Chief Gordon Rise said.
