Crosswalk enforcement Feb. 27 on SE Stark Street at SE 113th Avenue

(February 25, 2014) -- The Portland Bureau of Transportation and Portland Police Bureau advise the traveling public that a crosswalk enforcement action is scheduled for Thursday, February 27th to raise awareness of pedestrian safety and traffic law.

The enforcement action will be from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the unmarked crossing on SE Stark Street at SE 113th Avenue. 

A crosswalk enforcement action includes a pedestrian decoy positioned at marked or unmarked crosswalks. These actions are designed to inform the public of longstanding Oregon crosswalk laws. Drivers who fail to stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk and pedestrians who jaywalk may be issued a warning or citation by the Portland Police Bureau.

Crosswalk enforcement actions are an effective way to communicate pedestrian right of way laws to both drivers and pedestrians. The transportation and police bureaus do enforcement actions about once each month in response to requests by community members, city traffic safety engineers, and Portland Police to educate the general public on the rules at marked and unmarked crossings.
