Undercover Cops Continue To Crack Down At Crosswalks Statewide

Undercover crackdowns on motorists who blow through crosswalks are in full swing in area municipalities. More than 700 drivers have already been warned or ticketed in Collingswood, Pennsauken and Cherry Hill in recent weeks. The operations, which are part of a statewide safety campaign, put plainclothes police officers in crosswalks. Motorists who fail to yield, as required by state law, face fines or lectures. "Some of the stuff is just inexcusable," said Collingswood Police Capt. Richard Sarlo, noting that some drivers were talking on cell phones as they drove through crosswalks. Motorists who don't yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk face a $100 fine, as well as fees, court costs and two points on their driving record. APP
