PORT WASHINGTON - Police in Port Washington are hitting the street to make things safer for pedestrians.

Dozens of drivers were issued a warning or given a summons Thursday on Main Street for not yielding to people crossing the street. An undercover detective posed as a pedestrian to catch drivers in the act.

Drivers yielded when News 12 Long Island's cameras followed him, but police say that wasn't the case throughout the day.

Police are also using obvious ways to try to force drivers to slow down and stop at the crosswalk including large signs and increased visible police presence.
