Traffic Enforcement Dates and Locations

Pedestrian Safety Awareness:
The purpose of the pedestrian stings is to promote safety for pedestrians at marked crosswalks throughout the City of Tigard by making motorists aware of their responsibility to yield when the pedestrian is in the crosswalk. For additional information about what the motorist's requirement is check out these new laws for drivers to help keep pedestrians and cyclists safe.

The minimum presumptive fine for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk is $260.00. Under certain circumstances it could also be considered careless or reckless driving, or recklessly endangering which could have serious consequences as well.

Some of these locations include but are not limited to: The crosswalk on SW Hall near JoAnn's Fabrics, the crosswalk on SW Bonita at SW Milton Ct, the crosswalk on SW Greenburg Rd at SW Center, the crosswalk on SW 121st at SW Springwood, the crosswalk on SW McDonald at SW 100th. There are many other painted crosswalks throughout the city motorists need to be aware of. Please watch for them as you drive through the City of Tigard.



3 Flags Seat Belt Campaigns:
The two week-long blitz (future dates TBA) is a multi-jurisdictional approach to help ensure motorists respect, obey and understand the importance of using seat belts and child safety seats. Tigard Police officers will be focusing on enforcement at various times and days. This effort is made possible through dedicated federal funding providing overtime opportunities to carry out the program. Officers will be focusing on overall seatbelt compliance and other traffic violations.

Recent statistics indicated that Tigard motorists demonstrated nearly 97% compliance regarding passenger vehicle safety belt usage for front-seated occupants. The national average is just over 80%. While these figures are encouraging, it should also be noted that the lack of safety belt use was a major factor in half of all motor vehicle fatalities in Oregon during recent years.

Motorists are advised not to wear the safety belt under their arm. It is not only unsafe, it is also a violation of the safety belt statute. When a shoulder belt is placed under the arm, it is placed over the ribs. The ribs are not as strong as the collar bone and when broken, they are likely to damage internal organs.

The presumptive fine for failure to wear your safety belt is $110.00. The presumptive fine for wearing the safety belt behind your back or under your arm is the same.



Saturation Details:
The purpose of the saturation details is to bring motor officers from a bordering city increasing our capability of enforcing the traffic laws.

At present there are only three motor officers for the City of Tigard. We typically coordinate a joint effort with Beaverton PD motor officers and soon will add Tualatin motor officers to this detail. That brings the potential number of traffic enforcement officers on the saturation date to eight.

Traffic details do not necessarily focus on specific locations. We move through out the City and tend to focus on locations that have a high volume of traffic. Some of these are: Hwy 99/SW Hall, SW Greenburg Rd at Hwy 99 and SW Center, the Washington Square are and SW Greenburg Rd., Hwy 217 in both directions from I-5 to SW Scholls Ferry Rd., Hwy 99 at SW Royalty Parkway and SW Durham Rd. During these saturation details our focus is on violations contained in the Oregon Revised Statutes (and driver's manual) We enforce speed violations, seat belt violations, disobeying traffic control devices, to name a few.
