Is there anything you have ever wanted to know from Campbell Police Department? Well, this is your chance to ask.
Patch has always strived to bring its readers all types of information and keep them updated on what is happening in their communities. It is with that in mind that we bring you our column, “Ask a Campbell Cop.” We'll be teaming up with the Campbell Police Department to answer your questions.
Whether you have a question about certain laws and how they might affect you, your family or friends, or how to stay safe in certain situations, we want you to ask them. Every week we will run two or three questions and give some answers.

This week's questions from Campbell Patch readers were answered by Campbell Police Captain Dave Carmichael.
Q: Is a person on a skateboard, in a crosswalk, to be treated as a pedestrian, or a bicyclist, because of the wheels?
Whenever anyone is in a crosswalk, whether they are on foot, a skateboard, or a bicycle, drivers should exercise due care by yielding the right of way. Just because someone in a crosswalk may be riding a skateboard does not relieve the driver from this responsibility.
