Bend Parkway speeding traffic stop

Multiple law enforcement agencies will be doing extra patrols Tuesday through Thursday, looking for speeders, distracted drivers and other potentially hazardous behavior behind the wheel. It comes three weeks after Bend Police nabbed more than 250 drivers for speeding and other infractions on the Bend Parkway.

The focus will be on Highway 20 and Highway 97, including the Bend Parkway and the Bypass in Redmond. 

Participating agencies will include Bend, Redmond, Sunriver and Black Butte police, plus Oregon State Police and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

“The goal of this traffic safety detail is to reduce speeds, injuries and crashes and remind people of the risks of speeding, distracted driving and other dangerous behaviors,” the Bend Police Department said in a statement. “Summer in Central Oregon is a busy time, with many visitors and residents on our roads. We want everyone to arrive safely to their destination, and that means driving safely, slowing down and being responsible.”
