The Portland Police Bureau conducted another high-visibility safety mission along high-crash corridors

VIA GOOGLE MAPS - The Portland Police Bureau patrols high-crash corridors, such as this stretch of Divison Street. The Portland Police Bureau handed out 36 traffic citations and two warnings during a Vision Zero safety mission, authorities say.

The Tuesday, May 28 effort was another high-visibility mission in line with Vision Zero, a city plan that calls to eventually eliminate all traffic fatalities on city streets.

The police bureau's Traffic Division conducted this mission on high-crash areas such as "Martin Luther King Boulevard, Stark Street, Powell Boulevard, Division Street, Lombard Street and Highway 30," according to a news release.

Police say officers have discretion to make traffic stops on motorists, pedestrians and cyclists "as they saw appropriate" during the campaign.

Along with the citations and warnings, police also "offered" safety classes to 11 motorists after they were stopped. Police say more Vision Zero mission are planned for the future.
