LAKE OSWEGO – The Lake Oswego Police Department will be conducting a traffic safety detail to raise awareness of pedestrian issues in school zones related to speed. The goal is to increase safety in school zones and reduce the number of vehicle versus pedestrian crashes within the City of Lake Oswego.
The grant funded enforcement detail, through Clackamas County Traffic, will occur on Thursday, September 1st, 2016, from 7:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on Country Club Rd., adjacent to both the Lake Oswego High School and Lake Oswego Junior High School. The 20 mph school zone in this area is marked with flashing yellow lights and signage indicating that it is an enhanced school zone which means that fines are increased for violations.
Failure to obey the posted school zone limit is a violation of O.R.S. 811.111 (Violating a speed limit) and can result in a citation with an enhanced fine of $320 or more.
For further information regarding this school zone enforcement detail, contact Lieutenant Doug Treat of the Lake Oswego Police Department at (503) 635-0250.
