In March of this year, the Town of Collierville posted an instructional video about crosswalks and how to use them on their website and Facebook page. The Facebook post got 13,000 views, 129 likes, and 63 shares.
So what happened?
Assistant Chief Jeff Abeln says that traffic at crosswalks is back to where it was when the idea – and reason – for that video came about in the first place.
“The Town has gone to great lengths to provide crosswalks that are safe and convenient for everyone,” said Abeln. “The pedestrians are using them, but drivers aren’t yielding for anyone.”
