The Missoula Police Department will conduct ‘Pedestrian Crossing Emphasis’ Patrols through the fall in an effort to enforce pedestrian crossing laws within the city limits. The emphasis will be in the downtown business area and high foot traffic areas near schools to reduce pedestrian versus vehicle crashes. This enforcement will educate both drivers and pedestrians regarding crossing laws and their respective responsibilities. Enforcement of all laws related to yielding, or crossing at intersections will be a part of this enforcement action. The intent is to remind everyone that they are not alone on Missoula’s roadways. They will accomplish this through education and enforcement action when appropriate. Any questions can be directed Sgt. Greg Amundsen in the Missoula Police Department Traffic Office.
