The Pella Police Department is holding up its commitment to protecting pedestrians at crosswalks in response to citizen concerns over vehicles not stopping. Pella Police Officer Paul Haase says a human “decoy” was used downtown on Wednesday to enter crosswalks as motorists were approaching. Officers were posted at both ends of the block to ticket those who did no stop for the pedestrian. Haase says several citations were issued to motorists who failed to yield to a pedestrian using a crosswalk.
