HIGH VISIBILITY ENFORCEMENT UNIT (HVEU) - The Oregon State Police will be enhancing our patrol efforts on Interstate 5 from Eugene to Portland, and state highways/public roadways intersecting Corvallis and Eugene on Saturday, September 16.
Oregon State University and University of Oregon, both have home football games, which will draw a significant number of motorists to the area and the increased traffic volume comes with an increased risk of traffic collisions. The Oregon State Police will be seeking the public's assistance in ensuring safe highways for those who are traveling to and from these events, as well as those traveling through the area on other adventures.
Oregon State Police presence will be focused on reducing violations of the Fatal Five categories- Speed, Occupant Safety, Lane Usage, Impaired Driving, and Distracted Driving (SOLID). These violations are statistically proven to contribute to serious injury and fatal crashes. We encourage motorists to plan ahead, in order to avoid the need to rely on excessive speed, use their mobile devices, or operate their vehicles while impaired, in order to get to and from their destinations.
