Tigard Police Set To Enforce Pedestrian Crosswalk Laws
The Tigard Police Department continually strives to improve the safety for both pedestrians and motorists. Driven by grant funding, drivers can expect periodic pedestrian safety enforcement operations around Tigard conducted by Tigard Police Traffic Safety officers.

The next operation is planned for Monday, September 10th between the hours of 8 a.m and noon. The locations include Bonita Rd. and Milton Ct. as well as Hall Blvd. at the Fanno Creek Trail crossing. Warning signs announcing the enforcement operations will be positioned near the area. Motorists are advised to plan ahead to ensure safe stopping distances.

As a reminder:
  1. Oregon law requires drivers to stop when a pedestrian is in the crosswalk. In Oregon, any intersection of public streets is considered a crosswalk-whether marked with paint or unmarked.
  2. Drivers must stop and stay stopped for pedestrians in crosswalks until they have cleared the driverís lane and the adjacent lane.
  3. When a vehicle is turning, drivers must stop and remain stopped until the pedestrian has cleared the lane into which the driver is turning plus the entire adjacent lane. When turning at a signal, a driver must allow the pedestrian to clear the lane plus six feet of the adjacent lane.
