Police tighten up rules on crosswalk safety

De Pere Police are cracking down on section 346.24 of the Rules of the Road in Wisconsin because they feel that police need to more strictly enforce the law of pedestrian safety on crosswalks.

The law states that motorists must yield to pedestrians while they are in a crosswalk or uncontrolled intersection. The law regards to not only pedestrians, but also people in wheel-chair like devices and bicycles.

This summer police have become stricter against motorists who break the rules of the crosswalk. Police were surprised to find out that many drivers had never heard of the rule. They held a sting in the downtown area and 46 motorists were arrested.
