News Release
Distracted Driving Safety Campaign - 11/06/19

The Beaverton Police Department is participating in a yearlong Distracted Driving Traffic Safety Campaign. The focus of this campaign is to reduce distracted driving and make Beaverton roadways safer.   

 

Officers will be out on targeted patrols for distracted drivers during the month of November. This High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) detail will be paid for by grant funds from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department Of Transportation. 

 

Distracted driving is dangerous, claiming 3,166 lives in 2017 alone. Although there are many distractions in a vehicle, texting is the most alarming distraction.  Sending or reading a text takes your eyes of the road for an average of five seconds.  At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed. 

 

Beaverton Police Department is dedicated to making our roadways safer. Please eliminate driving distractions and remember, if U Drive and U Text U Pay.
