NUISANCE VIOLATORS

Both citizens and businesses within City limits are required to keep their property neat and clean in appearance. Those failing to meet this standard may be subject to fines issued by the Police Department.

Chapter 4 of the City Ordinances specifically addresses this law regarding your property.

MOVE OVER IT'S THE LAW

In the past ten years, more than 700 officers have been killed in traffic incidents. In many of these cases officers were pulled over to the side of the road conducting traffic stops when they were struck by drivers not paying attention. That's why there is a strict law in Oregon designed to protect police and other emergency workers.

The Move Over Law (ORS 811.147) says if your driving up behind any type of police or emergency vehicle pulled over on the roadside with emergency lights flashing you must:

  • Move over into another lane.
  • If you can't move over safely, slow down.

In all cases, the driver must try to provide as much room as possible for the emergency vehicle. In Clatskanie, some of our streets and parts of the highway are not very wide. I'm asking all citizens and visitors to take extra caution when you see one of us pulled over with our emergency lights flashing.

TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS

If damage to vehicles is minimal (less than $1,500.00) and you have exchanged information with the other parties involved in the accident you don't need to contact the police. If there is an injury or the vehicle damage exceeds $1,500.00 you must file an accident form that you can download from the Oregon DMV website.

COPIES OF POLICE REPORTS

If you need a copy of a police report, please contact the Columbia County Sheriff's Office for request procedures and fee information.
