The Eugene Police Department (EPD) is planning a traffic “Focused Enforcement Operation” in downtown Eugene on March 30th and 31st. The location of the extra enforcement will be from 6th Ave. in the north to 18th Ave. in the south, and Lincoln St. in the west to Kincaid St. in the east.

According to EPD sources the goal of the operation will be to uniformly enforce the law for all users, including pedestrians, cyclists, and car drivers. The reason I am giving this warning is to make sure that no one is given a citation due to lack of information and knowledge. Read on for details on what the police will be watching for, and how to avoid ending up on the wrong side of the law.
