NEWS ADVISORY
Crosswalk enforcement with Police is scheduled for Wed. on SW 2nd at Ankeny

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Police Bureau and Portland Bureau of Transportation announced that there will be a crosswalk enforcement action on Wednesday, March 28, to raise awareness of pedestrian safety and traffic law.

The enforcement will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at a marked crossing of SW Second Avenue at SW Ankeny Street in Portland’s Old Town.

A crosswalk enforcement action includes a pedestrian decoy 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.

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.
