From Campus Safety:
On Tuesday, 10-08-2013, representatives of the Galesburg Police Department confirmed that the “warning period” for persons failing to utilize the marked pedestrian crosswalks has ended. It is anticipated that persons who choose to cross “mid-block” in those areas where marked crosswalks have been installed will be subject to State of Illinois traffic citations ($120.00) as violations are noted.
Persons crossing area streets are encouraged to remain alert for vehicular traffic, avoid mid-block crossing and to use the marked crosswalks when available. Feel free to share this info with those who may not have had an opportunity to see this message. Contact Campus Safety (309-341-7979) with questions/concerns.
