Posted on FlashAlert: May 17th, 2017 4:36 PM
The Oregon City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017. This operation will be held on Molalla Ave at Pleasant Ave in Oregon City and last from 11:00 am until 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 ORS 811.028. 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.
