Stop For Pedestrians

These are photos from our pop-up campaign to call attention to the new law that requires motorists to stop and stay stopped as long as a pedestrian is in the crosswalk.

Did you catch us? for the 30 minutes we were at Route 571 and Sherbrooke Drive on Thursday, September 23 or the 30 minutes at Wallace Road and Scott Avenue on Saturday, September 25 as the new Arts Center was being inaugurated? We got some smiles and thumbs-up, but also some scowls and some drivers who ignored the law — and pedestrians seeking to cross Route 571.

There are three more opportunities to give us a wave as you drive by or — better yet — take part:

  • 7:15 a .m. Wednesday, October 6 at 7:15 a.m. at Clarksville Road and Route 571, by High School South;
  • 5:30 p.m. Thursday, October 21 at Canal Pointe Boulevard by MarketFair; and
  • 6:45 a.m. Monday, November 8 at Cranbury/Wallace Roads and Route 571.

Help us show West Windsor cares about pedestrian safety!
