All pedestrians in the Borough of Cresskill, especially those visiting our down town business district are kindly reminded that they are required to cross in the CROSSWALK!!!
Crossing the street without using the crosswalk, A.K.A. jaywalking, is not only illegal, but extremely dangerous.
Motor vehicle crashes involving pedestrians have increased over the past few years. This is due to numerous factors including but not limited to:
-Bergen County is densely populated.
-Drivers are more distracted while driving due to technology.
-Pedestrians are also distracted while walking due to technology and under the assumption that cars must stop where ever they wish to cross. (Vehicles are only required to stop if pedestrians are crossing in the crosswalk).
GET TO THE OTHER SIDE ALIVE,
USE THE CROSSWALK!
