POHATCONG TWP., N.J. - A new crosswalk has popped up in Pohatcong Township, New Jersey but township officials say they didn't put it there.
Apparently someone painted the crosswalk on River Road sometime last week.
It's located near train tracks that are used for seasonal railroad excursions throughout the fall.
Township officials believe someone affiliated with the railroad company may have painted the crosswalk with good intentions in mind.
"The idea is a good idea, it's for safety, which is the most important thing. And now that it was brought to our attention we have to act, because ultimately the township is liable for this type of situation," said Mayor James Kern .
The mayor says the township will work with the rogue crosswalk-painter to make sure the project follows proper protocol.
New Jersey has sued gun manufacturer Sig Sauer, saying it sold defective handguns to the state police.Read More »
