The Lake Oswego Police Department conducted a School Zone Enforcement detail on Thursday, April 27, 2017. The morning detail along Country Club Road adjacent to Lake Oswego High School started at 7:15 am and finished at 8:30 am. This detail was conducted during the posted 20 mph school speed designation.

During the hour plus long operation, a total of 27 citations were issued. The highest speed cited was 41 mph and the lowest speed cited was 32 mph. The average speed cited was 34 mph in the posted 20 mph school zone. All speeding citations were a minimum fine amount of $320. The fastest speed, 41 mph, incurred a fine amount of $520. In addition six of the citations issued were not speed related but included: Fail to Stop and Remain Stop for a Pedestrian in a Crosswalk, Fail to Obey a Traffic Control Device, Cell Phone Use and No Operators License.

One driver stopped for speeding in the school zone was taken into custody for a warrant issued by the City of Beaverton for Fail to Perform the Duties of a Driver (Hit and Run).

We encourage all drivers to please be aware of their speeds in the school zones throughout Lake Oswego. Safety and voluntarily compliance is the police department’s goal.

The School Zone Enforcement detail was made possible with funds received from a traffic safety grant designed to promote pedestrian awareness and safety as well as driver awareness and safety from Clackamas County Department of Transportation Traffic Safety.

Another School Zone Enforcement detail will be scheduled later in May 2017 on Boones Ferry Road near the Lake Grove Elementary School.
