NEWS ADVISORY
Crosswalk enforcement with Police is Wed. at W Burnside, NW 20th

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Police Bureau and Portland Bureau of Transportation announced a crosswalk enforcement event for Wednesday, October 26, to raise awareness of pedestrian safety and traffic law.

The enforcement will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at a crossing of W Burnside Street NW 20th Place.

A crosswalk enforcement action includes a pedestrian decoy positioned at marked or unmarked crosswalks. Those in cars and on bicycle 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 all who use our streets. The transportation and police bureaus do enforcement actions in response to community requests and to educate the general public on the rules at marked and unmarked crossings. They are conducted approximately once a month.

    Those in cars and on bicycle who fail to stop for ... pedestrians who jaywalk

    that's misleading... I never stop for jaywalkers since I figure they know what they're doing...
