Police conduct crossover safety blitz

By Melissa Murray, Ottawa Community News, September 30, 2016

Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians were flagged down by police officers conducting an education and enforcement campaign about crossover safety on Somerset and Bay streets on Sept. 27.

Ottawa Police Sgt. Patricia Urquhart, who heads the Central Traffic Enforcement Unit, said the first person they talked to told them they use the crossover – a pedestrian crossing indicated with striped markings, signage and in some cases flashing lights in pedestrian heavy areas – everyday, but even with signage and flashing lights cars don’t stop.
