Fixed Speed Safety Cameras

Speed camera signage

Speed Safety Cameras are a proven safety tool that reduce dangerous speeding in neighborhoods and save lives.

PBOT installs speed safety cameras on High Crash Network corridors, such as on SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, above. When people drive past the cameras while exceeding the posted speed limit, the cameras capture photos and video for review by Portland Police.

More information

PBOT installed the first cameras on SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway in fall of 2016. During the first 30 days of operation, top-end speeding decreased by 93 percent.

Speeding is a top contributing factor to deadly crashes across the Portland region. Portland's Vision Zero Action Plan, adopted in 2016, calls for installing pilot speed safety cameras on four high crash corridors in the first two years, and expanding program to additional high crash corridors following the pilot.
