Pedestrian Safety Operation Results - 07/31/18

On July 30, Gresham Officers conducted targeted enforcement along the area of NW Division St and NW Overlook Ave. Officers issued 50 citations from the hours of 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Education for drivers and pedestrians is vital to keeping our roads safe. Motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are waiting to cross, or who are in the process of crossing, the roadway. Motorists are also required to stop at all crosswalks when a vehicle is already stopped in a lane next to the one they are traveling in. Refer to Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 811.028, Failure to Stop and Remain Stopped for Pedestrian, for specifics on the law regarding drivers. Refer to ORS Chapter 814 for laws pertaining to pedestrians.

The department is hoping to raise pedestrian safety awareness for drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of pedestrian right-of-way laws. Additional missions will be scheduled again in September, as the new school year begins.
