Choose Your Ride

The Tigard Police DUII Taxi serves to encourage driver-responsibility. Remember, if you plan to drink, don’t drive. Call for a taxi, a sober driver or use public transportation to get to your destination safely. If you get behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated; you may end up in the back seat of a police vehicle. And that ride will be taking you to jail.

Winter Driving Tips

IceIce and snow comes when we least expect it. Here are some universal recommendations from law enforcement to avoid winter mishaps:

  • Allow enough time. Get an early start and allow plenty of time to reach your destination. 
     
  • Keep your gas tank full. You may have to turn back in a bad storm or you may be caught in traffic.
     
  • Keep windshield and windows clear. You may want to stop at a safe location to use a snow brush or scraper. Use the car defroster and a clean cloth to keep the windows free of fog.
     
  • Slow down. Posted speeds may be safe in most weather, but are an invitation for trouble on snow and ice due to stopping distance.  Keep your seat belt buckled and leave more distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead. Avoid sudden stops and quick direction changes.
     
  • Be more observant. Visibility is often limited in winter by weather conditions.
     
  • If you get stuck, try to move your car completely off the roadway and use your emergency flashers.  Call for a tow with your cell phone or try to flag down someone to call for you.  It is generally not o.k. to leave a vehicle on the shoulder since the lane markers may be obstructed by snow and traffic may need to use the shoulder to get by. 
     
  • DO NOT ABANDON your car.  Police have an obligation to protect life and property by keeping the roads clear, including the shoulders so that other traffic can be kept moving.  Any car left in the right-of-way could create a hazard.  If your car is obstructing traffic in any way, it could be towed and police tows are usually accompanied by a citation and an increased tow fee.
     

Help Reduce Speed in Your Neighborhood
