North Las Vegas police are slated to keep an eye on crosswalks Friday during a pedestrian safety event.
According to police, an enforcement period targeting drivers and walkers who illegally cross streets is scheduled for 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Police said officers will focus on drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks as well as address walkers who are crossing outside of a marked crosswalk.
