News Release
Oregon City Police Department Distracted Driving and Impaired Driver Enforcement - 09/11/19

During the months of July and August, the Oregon City Police Department had extra officers focusing on Distracted Driving. With grant funds from the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon Impact, officers conducted extra enforcement patrols specially targeting distracted driving. Remember, police in Oregon can pull you over if they see you handling an electronic device, costing you hundreds of dollars. So, keep your mind alert, your hands on the wheel and your eyes off the screen. Your life or someone else’s depends on it. One text or call could wreck it all.

 

During September, the OCPD will continue having extra officers focusing on impaired drivers. They will be aggressively seeking drunk/high drivers. There are many options for transportation (designated driver, Taxi, Uber, Lyft, Tri-Met) which will get you home or to your next destination safely. Have fun but do it safely! Drive sober or get pulled over.
