Amended by the Senate Business, Transportation and Workforce Development Committee to add an emergency clause to make the bill effective upon passage and signature of the Governor.

HB2872 - Cell phone use

 
Amended by Conference Committee to add an exception for agricultural workers and restore the provision that a police officer may enforce this only as a secondary action when a driver has been detained for a suspected traffic violation or some other offense. Previously amended by the Senate Judiciary Committee to remove the provision that a police officer may enforce the provision only as a secondary action and make it a Class D violation. The House Transportation Committee had earlier amended the bill to make it a Class B traffic violation for a person under 18 to operate a motor vehicle while using a mobile communication device if the person holds a provisional driver license, special student driver permit, or instruction driver permit.

“Mobile communication device” means a text messaging device or a wireless, two-way communication device designed to receive and transmit voice or text communication. The offense doesn't apply to a person summoning medical or other emergency help if no other person in the vehicle is capable of summoning help. A police officer may enforce this provision only as a secondary action when a driver has been detained for a suspected traffic violation or some other offense.

Originally written to make it a Class B traffic violation for a person to operate a vehicle while using a mobile communication device, including a text messaging device or a wireless, two-way communication device designed to receive and transmit voice communication, if the person does not use a hands-free accessory. The offense would not apply to a person operating an emergency vehicle or a person summoning medical or other emergency help if no other person in the vehicle is capable of summoning help.

Bill was originally written to amend ORS 818.020 to add a provision that a person will pay a fine of $500 for violating maximum weight limits, in lieu of Schedule 1 penalties in ORS 818.430, if at the time of the offense an enforcement officer determines the vehicle was eligible for an over-dimension variance permit, amend ORS 818.040 to add the same provision for violations of posted weight limits, and amend ORS 818.060 to add the same provision for violations of administratively imposed weight or size limits.

HB2936 - Permit violations


Bill is amended by the Senate Transportation Committee to make it a Class C traffic violation to fail to remove a vehicle from the highway after an accident if the driver has not suffered apparent personal injury, the vehicle is operable and doesn't require towing, and it's safe to drive the vehicle to a designated parking area along the highway or shoulder of the highway.

Bill is amended by the House Transportation Committee to remove the bill's original language and insert amendments to ORS 818.340 and 818.420 to make it a Class A traffic violation to violate provisions of an over-dimension variance permit, other than weight violations. Also inserting an amendment to ORS 803.420 to establish a $54 registration fee for motor homes that are 6 to 14 feet long. The registration fee for motor homes over 14 feet long would be $126 plus $7.50 per foot for each foot over the first 10 feet.

Bill was originally written to amend ORS 803.112, 803.113, and 803.117 to require the transferor of a vehicle to provide the Oregon DOT with the name and address of the transferee.

SB108 - Crossview mirrors


Amended by the Conference Committee to make it a Class C traffic violation if a truck weighing over 10,000 pounds and used in commercial delivery does not have forward crossview mirrors or, if there are no such mirrors, the driver does not visually inspect the path of the vehicle to verify it's free of persons or objects before reentering the truck. Amended to add provisions exempting commercial buses, tow vehicles, vehicles owned or operated by the U.S. or a governmental jurisdiction with the U.S. except when owned or operated as a carrier of property for hire, vehicles owned or operated by a mass transit district, vehicles used in solid waste or recycling collection, and farm vehicles.

Also amended by the Conference Committee to create a Class B violation for unsafe passing of person on bicycle and change the definition of "safe distance" when passing a bicyclist so it means a distance sufficient to prevent contact with the person operating the bicycle if the person were to fall into the driver's lane of traffic. Violation would not apply if driver is (A) in a lane separate from and adjacent to a designated bike lane, (B) traveling not more than 35 mph, or (C) passing a person on a bicycle on the person’s right side and the person is turning left. Also establishes that it is prima facie evidence of commission of the unsafe passing offense if a driver passes a person on a bicycle in a no passing zone and the passing results in injury or death of the person on the bicycle.

Earlier amended by the House Transportation Committee to delete provisions related to forward crossview mirrors and add provisions related to safe passing of bicyclists. Previously amended by the Senate Judiciary Committee to delete original language and substitute language that adds a new provision to the Oregon Vehicle Code making it a Class C traffic violation to operate a truck weighing 26,000 pounds or less, that is used for commercial delivery of packages and property, without it being equipped with forward crossview mirrors. The requirement would not apply to persons who certify that a driver of the truck has a clear and unobstructed view enabling the driver to see persons or objects within 10 feet of the front of the truck without a forward crossview mirror. The original Senate Bill 108 proposed (1) expanding the offense of following too closely so that it includes coming up behind another vehicle in an unsafe manner and (2) making it a Class A traffic violation to commit the offense and contribute to a collision.
