[ARCHIVED] Pedestrian Safety

Frederick, Maryland –The Frederick Police Department announces it will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operation in the Downtown area on Friday, November 18th between 12:00 PM and 5:00 PM.

The purpose of this enforcement operation is to:

• Increase pedestrian awareness of laws regarding pedestrian safety.
• Increase driver awareness of laws regarding pedestrian safety and right-of-way.
• Reduce fatalities, injuries and economic loss associated with vehicle-pedestrian accidents.
• Positively affect safe behavior of pedestrians and motorists.

We want to encourage pedestrians to legally and safely cross the road using crosswalks and and/or intersections with signals. In addition, we want to educate drivers on the rules of pedestrian right-of-way in crosswalks. Information will be provided for both drivers and pedestrians on pedestrian right-of-way rules in the State of Maryland.

This Pedestrian Safety Enforcement Operation is funded by the Maryland Highway Safety Office through the Mid-Western Traffic Safety Coalition. The Frederick Police Department was approved for funding in the amount of $5,500.
