Equity Endorses Measure 88

By October 17, 2014 News No Comments

Equity Foundation fully endorses Measure 88, the Oregon Safe Roads Act. We are committed to ensuring in our community, regardless of race, class, gender, orientation or resident status, has access to basic their needs. Everyone needs a safe way to get to school, work and church and that is why we stand firmly with our community to support the Oregon Safe Roads Act on the ballot in November.

Measure 88 is a common sense measure to keep our roads and communities safe. Voting YES allows the DMV to issue “driver cards” to Oregon residents who meet the following requirements:

  • Pass the State’s written driver knowledge test;
  • Pass the State’s behind-the-wheel driver test;
  • Provide proof of residence in Oregon for more than one year; and
  • Provide proof of identity and date of birth.

The driver card may not be used as identification for air travel, to enter a federal building, to register to vote, or to obtain any government benefit requiring proof of citizenship or lawful presence in United States. Driver cards help Oregon residents follow the law and improve safety for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians by reducing the number of uninsured and unlicensed drivers on the road. Seniors, immigrant families and workers are among the thousands of Oregonians who need this option to safely get to work, church and school.
