Watch out for walkers

Medford police have a pedestrian-safety operation planned today.

Officers will work from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of Ninth Street and Riverside Avenue, focusing on drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians in the crosswalk.

The operation to increase awareness of pedestrian-safety laws through education and enforcement is funded by a grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation.
