- You are required by law to stop at crosswalks when a pedestrian is crossing the roadway.
- Under Oregon law there is a crosswalk at every intersection.
- A crosswalk exists at any public street intersection, whether marked with paint or unmarked.
- A pedestrian is crossing the roadway in a crosswalk when any part or extension of the
pedestrian, including but not limited to any part of the pedestrian’s body, wheelchair, cane, crutch or bicycle, moves into the roadway in a crosswalk with the intent to proceed.
- If a driver fails to stop for a pedestrian crossing with a traffic control device or crossing in a crosswalk, the driver may be cited for a fine over $250.
These laws don't magically disappear during rush hour. Just stop! Stop the madness!
