Portland, Ore. – Crosswalk Enforcement Actions

Sharon White of the Portland Office of Transportation briefly explains how the city, the community, and police department work together on monthly Crosswalk Enforcement Actions. Those who fail to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian receive a citation for $242! That fine applies not only to drivers, but cyclists and other pedestrians who violate traffic codes.

Even Portland Mayor Tom Potter gets in on the action, volunteering to be a "decoy" during one such event.
