Rockford Scanner™: STOP For Pedestrians In The Crosswalk




 

If a pedestrian is in the crosswalk, YOU STOP FOR THE PEDESTRIANS

Loves Park Police said this is a law

The City has recently replaced the “yield to pedestrians” at Garden Plain and Riverside Blvd. because it was damaged by vehicles.

We were hoping that this type of damage was not being done intentionally. However, on Saturday, July 13, 2019, at approximately 5:30 PM, using traffic cameras, the attached photo was captured of someone intentionally running over and damaging the sign. Unfortunately, the license plates on the vehicle were unreadable.

This type of criminal damage to City property will not be tolerated. If you recognize the vehicle please report it to the Street Department Manager at 815-654-5040, so he may report it to the Police for further action. We ask that you do not post the vehicle information here. It will be deleted.

The City will continue to monitor this area to make sure this type of activity does not continue
