Default Decomissioned Police Cruiser

Decomissioned Police cruiser, probably bought at auction. Black with White Doors, no markings or ram grill, Oregon plates.

Menacing with vehicle. Corner of SE Ankeny and 39th Avenue, about 5:01 p.m. Revved and sped towards me in crosswalk with intent to scare or kill. Move or die.

Dark haired, light skinned male.

Please keep an eye out... I so want that @#$% license plate!!!

Update: I found a similar cruiser on 89th & Burnside. I met the driver. Not the guy I'm looking for. He offered to keep an eye out as he always spots old cruisers when driving.

Default White/Cream SUV OR plates 225 CEG

Elderly white male, glasses
OR plates 225 CEG
White/Cream SUV type vehicle

Stopped at red light on SW Barnes Rd, westbound at Cedar Hills intersection, in the rightmost left-turn lane.

Comes up behind us and honks (mind you, there is a red light and we are stopped). We wave (all fingers and smiles)

Green light, off we go, turning left. Note that traffic is also coming in from the right, mostly to get onto Hwy 26 westbound. We always take the lane until we get past the on-ramp, then move over to the shoulder.

He honks again, then passes very closely to my RIGHT (yes, could have touched him), then cuts in front of us, gets in the LEFT lane, and eventually gets onto Hwy 26 EASTBOUND.

WTF?

Beaverton Police has been told, and will be speaking to him. Firmly.

Default Road Rage Female

White or Cream PT Cruiser. Oregon 778 CDU.

Female driver became irrationally irate that I took the lane while still on the bridge with a red light ahead to make the left from 12th to Lloyd (the 84 overpass).

Yelled for a while at the light then proceeded through green light and in her anger ran the next red light at Lloyd and 11th (right turn, no stop). Managed to follow to the Kaiser Permanente Office just off MLK where pictures were taken.

Generic middle aged, overweight cage rager.

Be careful out there.

Default Yikes

Dark maroon (dirty) Subaru Lic. # YDL 759. Driver White Male mid 20s dark hair, unshaven.

Location: 26th and Holgate.

I was traveling south, commuting home in the dark, well past the stop light, in a bike lane, under street lights, and in the glow of the gas station. I have 2 bright and well charged headlights, an orange bike and a yellow wind breaker. The driver takes a wide arc from oncoming travel lane RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME into the gas station. I drop anchor and panic stop.

When I talked with the driver he apologized as if that would absolve him from his potentially murderous inattention. I tried to talk to him about the gravity of his lapse, but I could only blubber non-sequeters and I left with the exclamation "DAMN".

We are the only ones who attend to our safety. Be careful out there!

Angry 833 dau

Happened at night, car was danger close in passing me on Denny Rd, near King in Beaverton. Startle honked, nearly caused me to crash. I had been heading straight and had lights on, clear and dry conditions, happened at 6:53pm.

Oregon plate: 833 DAU

Didn't get a look at the driver (how could I see through the roof?). Car's a dark sedan, didn't get the color. Beaverton Police were called, and said that they would talk to the owner.

Default Tcr 843

License plate: TCR 843

Black Honda Mini-SUV.

Traveling on SE Main and about 100th Ave near the hospital.

25 mph zone.

Must have taken exception to the fact I wasn't squeezing the shoulder due to all the gravel and debris. Decided to gun the engine and roar past me leaving, seriously, less than an inch from my left hand grip. One wrong move and I am toast.

Gave chase, white male, dark hair, fled from crazy little me by taking a frantic right turn at Cherry Blossom causing side traffic to slow to let him burn on in.

I rode two blocks up 108th to the local Gateway Precinct and reported this fool.

Default Oregon WCX 880 Red Jeep Cherokee

Oregon WCX 880 Red Jeep Cherokee
Driven by young white male with dark hair and presumably very small male anatomy.

Observed running stop signs, driving on the sidewalk, speeding on one lane residential roads and in front of schools, tailgating, weaving through traffic, swerving in front and slamming on the brakes, shouting obscenities and gesturing at fellow road users.

Hello SWAT team, we have an armed lunatic loose on the streets of Beaverton.

Reported to the police, but unless they see him there is not much they can do except send a nasty letter. How long can someone go like this before they hurt somebody or get caught enough times to make a difference?
