It’s in everyone’s interest that traffic rules are publicized and understood. Laws are ever-evolving and we need to keep up. If we don’t understand a scenario and fail to yield, we’ll cause collision or death.
Everyone has different “common sense” ideas regarding traffic. 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.
