– Press release from the Bishop Police Department
In response to recent public concern regarding crosswalk safety in the town of Bishop, the Bishop Police Department would like to make the public aware of special enforcement on the crosswalks throughout town.
There are many marked crosswalks in the city, and it is the goal of the Bishop Police Department to make the public aware of them, to make sure pedestrians are safe, and drivers are abiding the law.
We also want to remind the public; as the weather warms up, more pedestrians will be out enjoying the warmth. Pay special attention in school zones for children walking to and from school.
The safety of the pedestrians within the city is very important; therefore, this detail and enforcement is necessary to inform drivers the severity of not yielding to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The police department is determined to keep our local residents and travelers safe.
