Springfield police are conducting a Crosswalk Yield Check at a crosswalk in the northern part of the city this week.
Springfield city officials said in a news release the officers will be monitoring a crosswalk for four hours each day at Atlantic and Campbell near Reed Middle School.
Posted signage alerts drivers that they’re approaching a Yield Check location. Those who are stopped for not yielding will be issued a warning and educational material. After three months, drivers will be issued tickets for “blatant violations,” according to the city.
The Crosswalk Yield Checks will take place through October.
