Some Oregon motorists believe stopping for pedestrians is only required when a yellow light flashes at a marked pedestrian crossing. Those motorists would be wrong. Other Oregon Motorists believe stopping is required only when white or yellow painted lines mark the intersection and a pedestrian is waiting to cross. Wrong again.
Oregon law requires stopping at any public street intersection where a pedestrian seek to cross. Oregon motorists must also stop mid intersections marked with white pained lines. Stopping must continue until all pedestrians have cleared the lane in which you travel and at least six feet into the next lane.
Pedestrian motor vehicle fatalities rise with temperatures. In 2004 over 550 Oregon pedestrians were injured in motor vehicle accidents; 45 Oregon pedestrians were killed that ear. Motorists have a legal duty to follow that rule. And, pedestrians can reduce risk of collision with a motor vehicle by remaining alert and avoiding dark clothes.
