November is S.T.E.P month

Grant Farhall

The start of November on Saturday brings with it the beginning of another police crack down.
In the latest "Selective Traffic Enforcement Program", officers will be out in force all month, making sure both pedestrians and drivers are sharing the streets.
Failing to yield to a pedestrian will cost you dearly with a $575 fine.
But Constable Mike O'Connor tells 660News, if you are walking you also have to do your part, not jaywalk and cross at marked intersections.
City police are also reminding parents, when taking your children to school, use the designated crosswalks, as opposed to crossing the street from wherever you park.
