The Oregon State Police predicts a larger-than-usual volume of traffic on the state’s highways during Memorial Day weekend.
According to a press release, OSP holds an “All Patrol Day” during historically busy weekends. On that particular day, all uniformed officers take to the roads so that they can be more visible on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

When hitting the roads this weekend, OSP wants drivers to be patient, cautious, and well-prepared.
- Departure time is often crucial. Give yourself plenty of time to get there so that you aren’t rushed or stressed out if traffic delays you.
- Be prepared for potential detours or construction by knowing alternate routes.
- Avoid unexpected repair costs by ensuring all vehicles are well-stocked and in good functioning order.
- Those taking kids on a trip should load up on entertainment options for the trip. That includes things like entertainment, food, and bedding.
The Fatal 5 will be the primary focus of enforcement efforts, but all traffic violations will be strictly enforced by OSP officers. There are five main causes of car accidents that cause serious harm or death.
- Safety of Occupants
- Lane Safety
- Drunk driving
- Inattention while driving
