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.
