OCEAN CITY -
This Labor Day Weekend the Ocean City Police Department has a warning for drivers -- Stop for Pedestrians.
Pedestrians have the right of way when it comes to New Jersey's roadways.
Thursday, officers were making sure motorist know the law by giving them warnings if they did not stop for pedestrians who were in the crosswalk.
Police also have a warning for pedestrians.
"That pedestrian really needs to know that that vehicle sees him, that that driver sees him and that driver's gonna stop, because that pedestrian will not win the battle if that car proceeds into the intersection and strikes him," said Capt. Steven Ang of the Ocean City Police Department.
The penalties for not stopping for pedestrians include a $200 fine, two points on your license, 15 days of community service and surcharges to your insurance.
