LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Traffic fines along a seven mile stretch of London Road, from Latham Road to Cottage Grove Reservoir Road, will be doubled starting Sunday, July 4.

That's because Lane County has designated London Road as a safety corridor. According to officials, this is part of an effort to reduce DUII, speeding, and the number of people killed and injured.

In recent years, multiple people have been killed and seriously injured in traffic crashes on London Road, officials said.

All of those crashes involved driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol (DUII) and most involved excessive speeds, according to officials.

The most recent speed data, collected in February 2021, identified 36% of drivers exceeding the 55 mph speed limit with the greatest recorded speed at 90 mph.

The doubling of fees will be effective July 4, 2021 through July 5, 2023.

  • For drivers traveling more than 30 mph over the speed limit, the presumptive fine is $440, but the enhanced fine is $875.
  • For drivers traveling 21-30 mph over the speed limit, the presumptive fine is $265, but the enhanced fine is $525.
  • For drivers traveling 11-20 mph over the speed limit, the presumptive fine is $165, but the enhanced fine is $325.
  • For drivers traveling 1-10 mph over the speed limit, the presumptive fine is $115, but the enhanced fine is $225.
