The City of Oregon City is launching a transportation safety program, Drive Safe Oregon City, as a means of addressing citizen concerns regarding vehicular speeding and unsafe driving practices that can lead to serious, irreversible consequences. In coordination with the City's Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), The Public Works Department, and Police Department, are working together to create this program by providing outreach, sharing resources, and producing educational materials.
Drive Safe Oregon City is designed as a support tool to inspire communication among residents about traffic safety and awareness. As a City, we encourage citizens to invite their neighbors to participate in lowering their speeds and refraining from distracted driving. While this program may begin with TAC and City staff, it will only thrive based on resident participation. We eagerly anticipate and welcome involvement by local Neighborhood Associations, Oregon City School District Parent Teacher Associations and Parent Teacher Organizations, volunteer service groups, and other grassroots movements interested in contributing efforts.
If you perceive a traffic problem in your neighborhood you can take action by getting involved by bringing traffic safety concerns to the Monthly TAC meetings, contacting Oregon City Public Works or the Oregon City Police Department and requesting a mobile speed radar trailer be placed in your neighborhood, access the online tools and reminder ideas designed to help your neighbors drive safe in Oregon City. In addition, future program materials will become available for display on your property to help promote safe driving practices.
Please join us in keeping our First City a safe city.
