Beginning, September 1, the Asheville Police Department will begin issuing citations for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists who are not abiding by traffic laws as a part of the Watch For Me NC campaign. Here are just a few reminders: - Motorists: You are required by law to yield to pedestrians who are crossing at corners or in crosswalks. - Pedestrians: Did you know that there is no such thing as jaywalking? However, there are rules that must be followed, such as obeying traffic signals (walk/don't walk signs) and yielding to motorists when not in a crosswalk. - Cyclists: You are responsible for abiding by the same traffic laws as motorists.
