On January 1, 2020, new rules go into effect in Oregon that will allow people riding bicycles to yield at stop signs or flashing red beacons instead of stopping completely, under certain conditions. People riding bicycles must still completely stop at a solid red traffic signal.
The new rules were created in part due to the physical effort required to stop and start a bicycle. Oregon, Idaho, Delaware and Arkansas have enacted laws recognizing this difference and specifying the conditions under which a cyclist may slow and yield instead of coming to a complete stop.
The new Oregon law requires that people riding bicycles approaching a stop sign or flashing red light slow to a reasonable speed, yield to anyone already in the intersection, and not approach others in the intersection so closely it would create a hazard. People riding bicycles must stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, make every effort to avoid an accident, and follow the directions of a police officer or flagger.
The full details of the new law are found in Oregon Senate Bill 998 enacted this past August. This updates Oregon Revised Statute 811.260 and 811.265. Violations to the rule are considered improper entry to an intersection - a Class D traffic violation subject with fines of $115, or $225 if in a work zone or school zone.

Welcome to our neighborhood. Boyd Acres is one of 13 areas defined and funded by the City of Bend. Boyd Acres Neighborhood Association (BANA) is NOT a Homeowners Association (HOA). Neighborhood Associations are mechanisms for communication between residents and the City Council. Each association has a representative on the Neighborhood Leadership Alliance, an official city committee.
BANA's boundaries are Hamby Road on the east and the Deschutes River to the west. The southern boundary is defined by Mt Washington Dr., the North Unit Irrigation Canal and Butler Market Rd. The north boundary is north of Cooley Road.
Bend, Oregon is an incorporated city in Deschutes County, one of three counties that are often referred to as Central Oregon. Whether you are a prospective resident, visitor, a new or longtime resident, these pages and links will direct you to more information that will help you enjoy and deal with all the neighborhood has to offer.
Our neighborhood is named for Charles William Boyd, the iconic pioneer, who came to Central Oregon in 1904, drawn by the potential to grow his cattle business. He purchased six acres by the Deschutes River with prospects for a water wheel and dam. A year later his family joined him and eventually his holdings grew to 600 acres supplying beef across the region. The area became know for its ranching and timber industries.
BANA welcomes newcomers and long time residents to participate in our activities and meetings. See Get Involved.
