Oregon Pedestrian Laws
Oregon has several traffic laws that protect pedestrians, giving pedestrians
the right-of-way in many situations. For example, a motorist must yield
to pedestrians on sidewalks and crosswalks—even when the “don’t
walk” signal flashes.
But when it comes to roadways, motorists have the right of way. However,
drivers still must exercise their duty of care by obeying the traffic
laws and operating their vehicle in a safe manner.
Common causes of a pedestrian-car accident caused by driver negligence include:
- Distracted driving
- Failure to yield right of way to pedestrians
- Disobeying traffic signals and signs
- Intoxicated driving
- Driving without considering inclement weather
If a driver breaches their legal duty and collides with a pedestrian, he/she
is responsible for the pedestrian’s damages. An injured pedestrian
can file a personal injury lawsuit to recover financial compensation.
