Roseburg Police: 'We're not looking to try and trick anyone or try and catch anyone'
ROSEBURG, Ore. - The Roseburg Police Department is trying to reduce the number of pedestrian injuries near crosswalks in the city.
With money from the "Oregon Impact," officers are on stand-by in downtown Roseburg for a pedestrian safety enforcement blitz. Police are on the look out for seatbelt violators, as well as drivers using cell phones while driving.
Officers say that their biggest goal is awareness.
"We're not looking to try and trick anyone or try and catch anyone," said Sgt. Gary Klopfenstein, with the Roseburg Police Department. "It would be wonderful if they all stopped."
Roseburg Police remind you to give pedestrians plenty of space while crossing, and watch out for children walking at different speeds.
