Be Alert - Pedestrian Safety Operation on Saturday - 03/21/19

GRESHAM, Ore.— The Gresham Police Department will be conducting a pedestrian safety operation on March 23 at the intersection of NW Division St. and NW Sleret Ave. The department is hoping to raise pedestrian safety awareness for drivers and pedestrians through a two-pronged approach: education and enforcement of pedestrian right-of-way laws.

The operation will be conducted from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., with warning signs posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone. Pedestrian safety education is vital to keeping our roads safe.

Motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are waiting to cross, or who are already crossing the roadway. Motorists are also required to stop at all crosswalks when there is a vehicle already stopped in a lane next to the lane they are traveling in. Refer to Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 811.028, failure to stop and remain stopped for a pedestrian, for specifics on the law regarding drivers. Refer to ORS Chapter 814 for laws pertaining to pedestrians.

Funding for this pedestrian safety operation is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation. Additional operations will be scheduled during the summer.
