The Astoria Police Department will have extra officers on duty Tuesday participating in a pedestrian safety enforcement program in conjunction with Oregon Impact and the state Department of Transportation.
The enforcement will focus on drivers who fail to yield to an officer who is acting as a pedestrian crossing at marked as well as unmarked crosswalks.
The goal of the program is to increase the safety of all pedestrians and drivers.
Officers will also be watching for vehicles that pass another vehicle that has stopped for a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
The fine for failing to stop and remain stopped for a pedestrian or for passing a vehicle that is stopped at a crosswalk for a pedestrian is $265.
