Stamford Po­lice Of­fi­cer Lind­sey Yan­icky was re­cently awarded the Traf­fic Safety Hero award by AAA North­east.

At its ninth annual Traf­fic Safety lunch at Testo’s restau­rant in Bridge­port, AAA North­east gave the award to Yan­icky, who was rec­og­nized for her work in a de­part­ment pro­gram that uses in­cen­tives in the form of gift cards to pedes­tri­ans who are “caught” com­ply­ing with ap­pro­pri­ate safety rules when cross­ing Stamford streets.

Yan­icky has is­sued more tick­ets than any other de­part­ment of­fi­cer to driv­ers who’ve failed to grant rights of way to pedes­tri­ans.
