Fixed Speed Safety Cameras are coming to

SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway on August 1.

Safety Cameras are a proven safety tool that can reduce dangerous speeding in your neighborhood and save lives. PBOT has designated SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway a High Crash Corridor. People walking along or crossing it on foot are twice as likely to be struck by a car than on the average city street. Recent Vision Zero crash data analysis has shown the corridor to be one of Portland's top streets where people driving are seriously injured or killed. Learn more.

About Vision Zero

People in Portland deserve safe streets on which to walk, bike, operate mobility devices, access transit and drive. Through the Vision Zero program, the City of Portland and our partners are working to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on our streets by 2025.

The Vision Zero Task Force is overseeing the creation of a Vision Zero Action Plan with specific steps to make streets safe. This plan will go to Portland's City Council for approval in October 2016.
