News Advisory:

Crosswalk enforcement action to take place Nov. 27

on SW Naito Parkway, north of SW Harrison

(November 22, 2013) - The Portland Bureau of Transportation and Portland Police Bureau advise the traveling public that a crosswalk enforcement action is scheduled for Wednesday, November 27th to raise awareness of pedestrian safety and traffic law.

The enforcement action will be from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the marked crossing on SW Naito Parkway just north of SW Harrison Street.

A crosswalk enforcement action includes a pedestrian decoy positioned at marked or unmarked crosswalks. These actions are designed to inform the public of longstanding Oregon crosswalk laws. Drivers who fail to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk and pedestrians who jaywalk may be issued a warning or citation by the Portland Police Bureau.

Crosswalk enforcement actions are an effective way to communicate pedestrian right of way laws to both drivers and pedestrians. The transportation and police bureaus do enforcement actions in response to community requests and to educate the general public on the rules at marked and unmarked crossings. They are conducted approximately once a month.
