Take Note

Intersection safety workshops planned

The Emory Police Department will hold a series of educational workshops on vehicular and pedestrian safety on campus for the month of October.

The following “stop-and-learn” tabletop sessions will be:

• Oct. 12, Emory University Hospital Bishop Pantry Lobby

• Oct. 14, School of Law 1st floor Student Lounge

• Oct. 19 , Cox Hall Cafeteria

• Oct. 20, Winship Clinic Lobby

• Oct. 21, Clinic A  2nd floor lobby

• Oct 27, Oxford Road Bldg. 3rd floor lobby

• Oct. 28, Children’s Healthcare Egleston lobby

All events are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Our University community is making great strides in reducing the amount of vehicular traffic and providing for a more pedestrian friendly campus,” says Chief of Police Craig Watson.  “Intersection safety — your safety — remains a concern for all of us.”

Watson says the session will illustrate ways to remain safe, whether traveling in a vehicle, on a bicycle or on foot. “Crossing streets, such as Clifton Road or North Decatur Road, at mid-block jeopardizes everyone,” he says. “Always using specified, marked crosswalks and crossing at the traffic signal can help to ensure our community’s safety.”

Obeying the posted speeds limits, which are 15 mph on campus and 25 mph along Clifton Road; walking on the sidewalks instead of in the street; and following the directions of the traffic signals are other ways to support pedestrian safety, Watson notes.
