FAIR LAWN - The Fair Lawn Police Department is sponsoring a monthlong pedestrian safety initiative.

Police hope the program will prevent more pedestrians from being struck by cars.

Officers say they will be looking for pedestrians crossing against the light, failing to use crosswalks or yielding to vehicles when crossing in the middle of a block.

Residents think the initiative is a great idea.

Police will also be watching for drivers who don’t stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk or who use cellphones illegally.
