Neighborhood Speed Watch is a public awareness program that solicits concerned Lake Oswego citizens as volunteers to participate in actively addressing and impacting the problem of numerous vehicles exceeding legal speeds on neighborhood streets.
The legal speed on local (residential) roadways and roadways with no speed limit signs is 25 mph. The speed limit in an alley is 15 mph.
The City furnishes equipment and training for citizens to record speeds and license numbers of cars traveling in excess of the legal speed limit in their own neighborhood. Upon receipt of this data, the City obtains the names and addresses of registered owners of the recorded vehicles and sends notices encouraging the owner or driver of the vehicle to observe the speed limit.
