Police in a Passaic County town are enforcing New Jersey's law that requires motorists to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.

Police Chief Louis Mercuro tells The Record newspaper officers were stationed along Belmont Avenue from the North Haledon border to the Paterson city line.

Penalties include two points against a motorist's license and a $200 fine. They're also subject to an insurance surcharge and 15 days of community service.
