GREENSBORO — Greensboro police on Tuesday will conduct a pedestrian safety enforcement operation focusing on motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians who fail to yield the right of way.

Dubbed “Watch for Me NC,” the operation will be conducted during the school zone times of 8:30 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m., according to a police department news release. 

The department hopes the enforcement campaign will encourage people to use safe practices while driving, walking and cycling.

The morning and afternoon operation will be conducted at Page High School, 201 Alma Pinnix Drive, at the two crosswalks between East Cone Boulevard and Golden Gate Drive.

Officers are partnering with Page High School and the Greensboro Department of Transportation during this initiative.

Crosswalk enforcement actions are an effective way to communicate pedestrian right of way laws to driver’s, bicyclists and pedestrians, according to the release. People stopped during this safety operation will be issued educational materials, warnings or citations.

Officers use motorcycles and marked and unmarked vehicles during the operation.
