NEWS ADVISORY

Crosswalk enforcement with Police is scheduled for today Downtown

 

WHAT

A crosswalk enforcement action includes one or more pedestrian decoys positioned at marked or unmarked crosswalks. Drivers that fail to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk and pedestrians that jaywalk may be issued a warning or citation by the Portland Police Bureau.

 

WHY

Crosswalk enforcement actions have proven to be 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 new crossings.


 

WHO

Portland Bureau of Transportation traffic safety staff and the Portland Police Traffic Division

 

WHEN

Wednesday, February 23, from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Crosswalk enforcement actions are conducted monthly.
