Downtown Portland Crosswalk Enforcement Keeps Police Busy

CROSS WALK BUST

The Portland Bureau of Transportation teamed up with the Portland Police Bureau to execute a two and a half hour crosswalk enforcement at SW 4th and Montgomery Tuesday afternoon.

As pedestrians continued to walk back and forth, motorcycle cops hid and waited for motorists who chose not to stop.  The exercise provided a good reminder for motorists that they must stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, then wait for them to clear before moving on.

PBOT says traffic accidents kill more people every year in Portland than homicides.
