The Greenfield Police Department has received a state highway safety grant to improve pedestrian safety, and officers will soon be watching in unmarked cars for drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians.
State law requires drivers of vehicles to yield to pedestrians when they are crossing in a crosswalk without exception, said police Sgt. Dave Patrick in a news release announcing receipt of the grant.
So far this year, Greenfield police have investigated eight accidents in which pedestrians have been hurt.
Fines for failing to yield range from $63 to $145.
