Welcome!

UPDATE September 2020.  Following the pandemic, we’ve ended this organization.  It’s been an honor to serve Corvallis for 7 years.  We’ll keep our website, Facebook page and Google Group online due to the useful content, but it’s unlikely there will be updates.  If you’re interested in this type of work and wish to revive the organization, email info@corvallisrightofway.com.

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 cause collision or death.

Everyone has different “common sense” regarding what traffic rules should be.  Myths get repeated.  The only way to know the rules is to read them 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.
