Village Crosswalks

With the warmer weather, the village crosswalks that intersect Broadway at Westcott, Emerson and Church St. are once again in place. State law requires drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, particularly if a pedestrian is in a crosswalk. This law is in effect all year long, even when the signs are not in the roadway. Thank you.
