Thursday, June 22nd, beginning at 7:30 a.m., law enforcement officials from across the Willamette Valley will be joining forces to detect and combat dangerous driving behaviors such as speeding, following too close and distracted driving. The Marion County Sheriff's Office, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Washington County Sheriff's Office and the Oregon State Police will be out working high volume traffic areas from Portland down to north Marion County.

Deputies with the Marion County Sheriff's Office will be working overtime to patrol the areas of River Road North, French Prairie Road NE, Highway 219, Ehlen Road NE, Highway 99 and Interstate 5. Did you know that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2014 some 9,262 people died in speed related crashes? That is why Deputies and Troopers will be out in force to educate drivers and enforce traffic laws to help provide a safe travel experience to the residents and visitors of the Willamette Valley. Traffic operations like these are made possible by grants from the Oregon Department of Transportation.
