Middlesex County Says Stop for Pedestrians

Middlesex County has created a traveling sign aimed at informing motorists about the law that took effect last year and requires motorists to stop — not just yield — for pedestrians in crosswalks. The sign also spells out the consequences of those caught not doing so: two points plus a $200 fine.

The sign can be requested by any Middlesex municipality. So where would be a good spot in Plainsboro? “Pick a street, ANY street” is what we were told via Facebook. What do you think?

The Middlesex County sign looks like this:

    Start with your local government … perhaps the mayor and the police department. Please click on the blue text (links to the newspaper article) and you will see some county names there.
