June Pedestrian Safety Operation Results (Photo) - 07/15/24

GRESHAM, Ore. – The Gresham Police Department is actively participating in Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation Pedestrian Safety Operations. On June 19, Gresham Officers conducted targeted enforcement in the area of SE Division St. and Main Ave., from the hours of 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Officers made 34 traffic stops and issued the following citations.


  • 31 citations for Failure to Stop for Pedestrian in a Crosswalk, ORS 811.028.

  • 2 citations for Failure to Properly Use Safety Belts, ORS 811.210
  • 9 citations for other violations related to expired registration, driving unlicensed, driving uninsured, and illegal window tint.


Education for drivers and pedestrians is vital to keeping our roads safe. Motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians who are waiting to cross, or who are in the process of crossing, the roadway. Motorists are also required to stop at all crosswalks when a vehicle is already stopped in a lane next to the one they are traveling in.


Refer to Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 811.028, Failure to Stop and Remain Stopped for Pedestrian in a Crosswalk, for specifics on the law regarding drivers. Refer to ORS Chapter 814 for laws pertaining to pedestrians. The department is hoping to raise pedestrian safety awareness for drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of pedestrian right-of-way laws. Additional missions will be scheduled during the summer.
