Complete Oregon accident reports and news.

Oregon - The Beaver State is known for a diverse landscape including the Pacific coastline, the Cascade Mountain Range, and dense evergreen forests

Oregon is the ninth largest state and, with a population of 4 million, the 26th most populous. Its borders are defined by the Columbia River to the north and the Snake River to the east. 

Oregon's climate is generally mild. The climate varies with dense evergreen mixed forests spreading across much of the west, and a high desert to the east. The southwestern portion of the state, particularly the Rogue Valley, has a Mediterranean climate with drier and sunnier winters and hotter summers, similar to Northern California. Like Western Europe, Oregon, and the Pacific Northwest in general, is considered warm for its latitude, and the state has far milder winters for the given elevation than the comparable latitude parts of North America. Western Oregon's climate is heavily influenced by the Pacific Ocean. The western third of Oregon is very wet in the winter, moderately to very wet during the spring and fall, and dry during the summer. 

Major roadways in Oregon

The state highway system consists of about 8,000 miles (13,000 km) of state highways owned and maintained by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Currently, there are 67 active Primary State Highways.The northern part of the state is connected to the southern part of Oregon by Interstate 5. Interstate 84 joins the eastern and the western part of Oregon. The State of Oregon has 66,902 miles of total roads and highways. The good roads of Oregon help in the intra and inter-state connectivity.

Legal and Other Resources and Information


Oregon has improved the state's drunk driving law. A mandatory interlock law in 2007, coupled with strong law enforcement efforts, has reduced drunk driving deaths by 30 percent. And, in 2011, a loophole was closed to require ignition interlocks in DUI diversion agreements, as more than half, 11,000 of 24,000, DUI offenders receive diversion agreements. MADD calls on Oregon to utilize sobriety checkpoints and no-refusal activities.

State of Oregon - Department of Transportation

The Oregon Department of Transportation began life in 1913 when the Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Highway Commission to "get Oregon out of the mud." Today, the Oregon Department of Transportation works to provide a safe, efficient transportation system that supports economic opportunity and livable communities for Oregonians. We develop programs related to Oregon’s system of highways, roads, and bridges; railways; public transportation services; transportation safety programs; driver and vehicle licensing; and motor carrier regulation.
