'Struck' is the Portland Bureau of Transportation's campaign to support safe travel speeds. It is part of Portland's Vision Zero work to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries.
As people travel faster, the risk of death or serious injury rises dramatically. A person walking struck by a person driving 40 mph is eight times more likely to die than one struck by a person driving at 20 mph (see image below).
What you can do to support safe speeds
Set the pace. Obeying speed limits helps keep you and others safe.
Stay strong. Avoid being pressured into speeding.
Share the love. Share the Struck materials below with family or friends.
'Struck' campaign materials
Portlanders continue to express interest in sharing the "20 is Plenty" campaign from 2018.
While we no longer have yard signs available, we are making the art work available for people wanting to create and purchase their own materials. Click the links below the images to access PNG files.
This bike jersey is an example of how the art has been used -- a Vision Zero staffer had this jersey custom made.
Evaluation of Struck campaign
Please help by pledging to do four things: drive at safe speeds, drive sober, drive without distractions, and be extra careful on wide, fast streets.
