News Release
Hillsboro Police Complete Pedestrian Crosswalk Enforcement Patrols - 07/11/19

On Wednesday, July 10, the Hillsboro Police Department along with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office conducted a pedestrian safety enforcement operation to raise awareness of crosswalk safety for drivers and pedestrians. During this enforcement operation there were a total of 70-traffic stops made that resulted in 60-citations issued for drivers not stopping for the passing pedestrians.

Motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians waiting to cross or crossing the roadway, and at all crosswalks when a vehicle is stopped in an adjacent lane.

Drivers should give pedestrians space and slow down. It is the pedestrian’s responsibility to stop, look, and listen while at a crosswalk. 

Pedestrian fatalities accounted for 16% of all Oregon fatal crashes in 2017. Pedestrian injury is a leading cause of unintentional injury-related death among children. 

This operation was grant-funded by the Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation. For more information, please contact Sgt. Jincy Pace at 503-615-6665.  For further information visit. http://bit.ly/2S3Dsix
