With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, remember to obey all traffic laws while you are out and about - whether you are walking, riding a bike or driving a car.
Due to traffic violations observed and reported by citizens and noticed by officers, Eugene Police’s Downtown Team will conduct a traffic operation on Thursday, December 13, from noon to 5 p.m. in the Broadway/Willamette and Broadway/Olive areas. The enforcement will focus equally on all road users, including motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians.
The intent of the operation is to educate the public and to reduce the number of crashes and conflicts that occur in an area where there is a high concentration of many modes of transportation.
The officers will be focusing on a variety of traffic violations that seem to contribute the most to crashes or other conflicts between road users. These violations include traffic control device violations, failure to yield right-of-way violations, speeding, improper turns, failing to signal lane changes or turns, improper lane usage, failing to obey one-way designations, and pedestrians suddenly leaving the curb.
