It’s in everyone’s interest that traffic rules are publicized and understood. Laws are ever-evolving, and if you haven’t kept up in the last 5 years, there are things you need to know. If you don’t understand a scenario and fail to yield, you will cause collision or death.
Everyone has different “common sense” ideas regarding traffic, and myths get repeated. The only way to know the rules is to read them for yourself. This website summarizes Oregon laws in common language and provides links to the original text. We prevent collisions by describing our obligations to yield to each other. If you learn even one concept from our site, you become a safer driver or bicyclist.
