Traffic laws in Portland and the state of Oregon are complicated, just as they are everywhere else. If you have a driver's license, you should know them... but you probably don't.
- Effective January 2010: Law prohibits all drivers from using a mobile communication device while operating a motor vehicle.
- Motorists must yield to bicyclists; motorists and bicyclists must yield to pedestrians; motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians must yield to marauding babies (?).
Motorcyclists are required to be endorsed, wear a DOT-approved helmet, and have insurance.
