News Release from Oregon City Police Dept.
Posted on FlashAlert: August 9th, 2017 10:47 AM
The Oregon City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. This operation will be held on 7th St. at John Adams St. 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. A pedestrian is crossing the roadway in a crosswalk when any part or extension of the pedestrian, including but not limited to any part of the pedestrian's body, wheelchair, cane, crutch or bicycle, moves onto the roadway in a crosswalk with the intent to proceed.

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.
