Knoxville Police Department to Monitor Crosswalk Areas

The Knoxville Police Department will be taking extra time to monitor crosswalks in Knoxville next week.

The program is part of the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau program to bring awareness to the danger of crosswalks near schools. School Resource Officer Kyle Keller tells KNIA/KRLS News drivers need to stay aware when driving near crosswalks because kids are excited and more likely to be running and not paying attention to cars. Keller says the department will be monitoring the crosswalks between December 11th through the 15th during the times when school is beginning and ending.
