Oregon City Police Participating in May Safety Belt Blitz - 05/12/16
Oregon City, Oregon (May 12, 2016, 9:25 am): The Oregon City Police Department along with several Oregon sheriff's offices, local police departments and OSP are participating in the OREGON SAFETY BELT OVERTIME CAMPAIGN BLITZ. The Blitz starts May 16, 2016 and continues through May 29, 2016. Officers will also be on the alert for persons exceeding the posted speed limit or violating the "hands-free" cellphone law. This enhanced enforcement is paid from dedicated funding through USDOT's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Oregon City Police Department wants to remind you to "BUCKLE UP" before operating your vehicle.

The following information is provided by O.D.O.T. and the US Department of Transportation.

Belts and child restraints work by holding a person safely inside the vehicle during sudden stops, swerves or crash. Without a belt or child seat, occupants may be violently thrown against each other, the car interior or completely out of the vehicle, greatly increasing the risk of injury or death.

Oregon law requires belts be used and maintained in working order. Children weighing under forty pounds must use a child seat with harness. Children under one year or weighing less than twenty pounds must ride in a rear-facing child seat. A child over forty pounds must use either a child seat or booster until they reach age eight or 4' 9" tall and the adult belt fits them correctly. A recent study by University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute revealed that "even those adult belt systems with designs most likely to fit children do not fit well when used for children aged six to twelve."

Safety belts, when maintained and used properly, can reduce the chance of fatal injury to adults by 45 to 65 percent. Properly functioning airbag systems can further reduce these risks. If you have concerns about recent product recalls related to your vehicle's safety belt or your child's safety seat, use your vehicle identification number or seat serial number to find current recall information on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website at: http://www.nhtsa.gov/ or check with the product manufacturer.

For help installing child car seats, consult the seat manufacturer's instructions, your vehicle owner's manual, or visit a local child seat fitting station listed at: http://www.nhtsa.gov/apps/cps/index.htm or at http://oregonimpact.org/car-seat-resources/
Oregon City Police Pedestrian Safety Enforcement - 05/05/16
Oregon City, Oregon (May 5, 2016, 8:55 am): The Oregon City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Thursday, May 12th, 2016. This operation will be held on 5th St. at Washington St. in Oregon City, between the hours of 11:00 am and 3:00 pm.

The primary focus of this operation is to raise pedestrian safety awareness. The Oregon City Police Department hopes to raise awareness of drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of the pedestrian right away laws, using a decoy pedestrian. Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone.

As a reminder, motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are waiting to cross, or are crossing the roadway. Motorists are required to stop at all crosswalks when there is a vehicle already stopped in a lane adjacent to the lane they are traveling in.

The members of the Oregon City Police Department are dedicated to enhancing the safety of both citizens and guests of the city. Funding for the pedestrian safety operation is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact.
