In January 2017, we released our Corvallis study of behaviors that cause car/bicycle and car/pedestrian collisions, with literature review.

It’s in everyone’s interest that traffic rules are understood and well publicized.  The 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 how traffic should flow, and myths get repeated too often.  The only way to know the rules is to read them for yourself.  This wesite simplifies the learning and brings the answers to you.  We summarize Oregon right-of-way laws in common language and the links you need to learn more.  We prevent collisions by describing our obligations to yield to each other.  If you learn and apply even one concept from our site, you become a MUCH safer driver or bicyclist.

We are also active on our Facebook page.
