Cars are a common form of transportation in Oregon. People rely on their cars, trucks and commercial vehicles for a variety of different purposes. However, motor vehicles happen to also be one of the most highly regulated activities in Oregon as well. There are rules about who can drive, how fast people can drive and where people can drive. Activity inside a person's car -- like using a cell phone or a seatbelt -- is also regulated by state law.

Cars and trucks are obviously a frequent mode of transportation for many Oregonians. However, in Oregon many laws dictate the conduct that people must abide by as they are driving. These laws tell people where they can drive, how fast they can drive and whether they are allowed to drive in the first place. By violating these rules, Oregon residents can be charged with a traffic citation. These citations can result in fines and other penalties, and more serious traffic offenses may result in misdemeanor charges.
