Police warn New Jersey residents not to use fake spray-painted crosswalk

UNION, New Jersey (WABC) -- Police in New Jersey are warning people not to use a fake crosswalk.

Township of Union police say the spray-painted crosswalk was discovered Thursday morning at the intersection of Vauxhall Road and Brookside Drive.

Police say the intersection is located on a curve with an incline, making it unsafe for pedestrians to cross.

Instead, pedestrians should cross at the intersection of Vauxhall and Salem roads where there is a traffic light, or at the intersection of Vauxhall Road and Biscayne Boulevard which has a properly marked crosswalk and signage.

It is unclear who painted the fake crosswalk.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Union Police at 908-851-5000.
