SGF Yields notifies the public of Crosswalk Yield Check location for week of March 27

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Springfield Police Department will conduct a Crosswalk Yield Check the week of March 27 at the following location:  
1300 E. BRADFORD PARKWAY (near CoxHealth Medical Center) 


Three police officers will station themselves at this crosswalk for approximately four hours, monitoring for driver compliance. One officer in plain clothing will act as a pedestrian, a second will function as a spotter and a third will be in a patrol vehicle, ready to stop those who do not properly yield to the pedestrian.  

Posted signage will alert drivers that they are approaching a Yield Check location. Those who are stopped will be provided a warning and educational materials. After a warning period, drivers may receive citations for blatant violations. Officers may also address any pedestrians that do not follow regulations, providing similar warnings and education to those who put themselves or others at risk.  

Funded through a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation, Crosswalk Yield Checks are conducted via a partnership between the Springfield Police Department and the SGF Yields pedestrian safety program administered by Springfield Public Works.
