North Plainfield launches pedestrian safety program

NORTH PLAINFIELD - North Plainfield police have announced a program aimed at cracking down on pedestrian safety related laws.

Police Chief William G. Parenti says the department is partnering with "Walk Safe - Cross Safe" Pedestrian Safety Education and Enforcement.

Parenti says the department will have police officers targeting pedestrian-related violations both in the business district and surrounding the schools. The department's traffic safety division has distributed pedestrian safety fliers to all of the town's students.

"Our statistics have shown that certain areas of town are more dangerous to pedestrians and therefore we will focus our efforts on those areas," Chief Parenti said.
