Beaverton Police will start using the speed enforcement technology already installed within the four photo red light monitored intersections of the city starting Saturday, September 15th.
Between September 15th and October 15th, ONLY warning citations will be issued. After October 15, 2018, drivers who exceed the speed limit through the intersection of SW Walker Road/SW Cedar Hills Blvd may be issued citations per the 2017 Oregon legislative language.
The three remaining intersections, at SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy/SW Griffith Drive, SW Allen Blvd/SW Lombard Ave and SW Scholls Ferry Road/SW Hall Blvd will be phased into the program in 2018 and 2019.
Officer Jeremy Shaw, Public Information Officer for the Beaverton Police Department, says between July of 2015 and July of 2016 over 94,000 drivers were traveling 11 mph or more, above the speed limit, through our four red light monitored intersections.
Speeding significantly increases the risk of serious injury or death to pedestrians and occupants of vehicles. Beaverton Police will start using speed monitoring technology to increase safety at those intersections.
Citation data will be captured by the city’s new vendor, Conduent, through DriveSafeTM technology. A Beaverton Police officer will review the captured data for accuracy. Once accuracy has been verified, the officer will electronically issue the citation and it will be mailed to the driver.
Motorists traveling through these intersections should expect to see an increase in photographic flashes as both red light and speed violations will be captured.
