Order yours today! Operators are standing by at (503) 823-SAFE (7233)

Now you too can be the proud owner of the cool bumper sticker shown above.

Here’s how:

  • Name
  • Mailing address with zip code
  • Number of bumper stickers requested

For more pedestrian safety facts, figures, and fun, check out PDOT’s pedestrian safety page.

If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away.

    Do they make them in bike size or only in car size?

    Where can I get one of those bright red \”I parked in a bike lane\” stickers to slap on the back of the next offending car I see?

    That is what we really need.

    How about River City Bicycles new ad in Willamette Week, with an arrow pointing to the right, reading \”Please Check Your Blind Spot\”? I\’d slap that on my car and my bike.

    Bike bucket panniers (sold at CitiBikes) are perfect for bumper stickers.
    I think a great bumper sticker would be:
    \”Please Yield to Cyclists in Bike Lanes\”
    I\’ll probably make one myself.

    Hey, I just got my stickers in the mail, and they included this awesome little pamphlet on pedestrian law; the most important being that any public intersection is a crosswalk, marked or unmarked, and cars and bikes!!! must yield.

    I called PDOT to get a bunch of them.

    I know it\’s not a bike thing, but I\’m convinced that if ped laws are enforced, it will make the roads safer for all.

    If anyone has a business, call PDOT and get some of those pamphlets to display at your checkout counter.

    I plan on carrying some with me so if I ever get into a \”discussion\” with a driver, I\’ll have the pamphlet to prove my point.

    Spread the love, yield to a pedestrian today!

    How come there is no one on a bicycle on the bumper sticker.
