"Cops in Crosswalks" - Decoy Enforcement Program

The Lyndhurst Police Department will be out in force over the next several months enforcing New Jersey Law requiring motor vehicles to stop and stay stopped for a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk. Some of this enforcement will be done with the use of plain clothes officers as ‘decoys’ within the crosswalk. The goal of the program is primarily to educate drivers.

But, drivers beware… motorists who violate the law are liable for up to a $200 fine, two driver’s license points, 15 days of community service, and insurance charges.
