SALEM, Ore -  At the request of local leaders across the state, the Oregon Senate passed House Bill 2095 with bipartisan support.

HB 2095 authorizes all cities in the state to use photo radar for managing speed, eliminates the restriction on the number of hours per day photo radar may be used in any one location, and expands the authority of cities to set designated speeds for certain residential streets up to 10 miles per hour lower than the statutory speed, but not less than 20 miles per hour.

“By expanding the use of photo radar and granting cities greater flexibility in setting local speed limits, we are taking proactive steps towards reducing the risk of high-speed crashes and protecting pedestrians, cyclists, and kids.” said Sen. Aaron Woods, (D - Wilsonville), carrier of the legislation. “As a state, we must continue to prioritize safety on roads and invest in evidence-based solutions that make our streets safer for everyone.” 

House Bill 2095 now moves to Governor Kotek’s desk for consideration.
