(WBIR) The Morristown Police Department says it's keeping an eye out for drivers not stopping for pedestrians in crosswalks. If officers catch someone not obeying crosswalk and intersection laws, they'll write them an $89.75 ticket beginning April 24, according to a release.
Under Tennessee law, drivers are required to yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks and intersections. Police are also urging people to stop and look before they walk across a highway.
Recently, Morristown police have received complaints about drivers not stopping for pedestrians in crosswalks in the West Industrial Park.
