SAFE TRAFFIC SAFETY CLASS
Where Human Nature meets the Laws of Physics
Discover your own personal reasons for wanting to pay more attention
You don't need to have a ticket to attend the SAFE class, but...
If you’re reading this website, right away you’ve got our sympathy, because more than likely it means you’ve got a traffic ticket. We hope it’ll be your last! Here’s everything you always hoped you’d never need to know about Traffic Class.
EMAIL (link above) OR CALL CAROL AT 503-224-2244 IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT A CLASS DATE.
Be sure you know exactly where you are going!
If you are using the internet for directions, enter the address:
People coming from the south have reported problems with the internet maps. Some of the roads near PCC exist only on paper. Print a closeup map and follow the notes. Good luck!
Click here for a link to a Mapquest map. (NOTE: If you're coming from south, going north on I-5, where it says to turn right on 53rd, don't go all the way to Capitol Hwy. Instead, immediately turn left onto Pomona and go straight up the hill to the stop light. Turn right, and the entrance to PCC is on the right at the next light.)
If you want help with directions by phone, call right away, today.
TCB Building (near the bus stop)
After you enter the campus, to find the TCB building, jog left at the “T” intersection and then continue downhill in the big parking lot. The TCB building is the closest one to the parking lot, right at the base of the hill, near the bus stop. Come in the front door and head straight back. Watch for the “TRAFFIC CLASS” sign.

IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER call PCC at 971-722-6111 for a recorded message. If the campus is closed, you will be rescheduled to the next available class (no reset fee, of course). If the campus is open, class will be held. Use your own judgment about driving, based on conditions in your area. If you decide not to drive based on weather, leave a message at
WHAT TO BRING:
LUNCH OPTIONS WITHIN DRIVNG DISTANCE:
You are not registered until your tuition has been received.
You can either pay with a credit card online or snailmail your tuition.
Make your check or money order for $75 out to: SAFE/Carol Routh
There is no need to send it priority, certified, overnight, or other expensive way. It usually arrives the day after it’s postmarked. It’s never a good idea to mail cash. You can get a money order at any Post Office, bank, and most grocery stores.
Your receipt will be waiting for you at the class.
If you can’t mail your tuition within 3 business days, please call to make other arrangements: 503-224-2244. Please don’t wait till after the class and then say you didn’t come because you didn’t have the money. Call first.
TO PAY TUITION ONLINE $75
It does not ask which date you want to attend. Please send an email telling us you have paid online and which class date you want. Contact by email
Also, if the name on the credit/debit card is different from the person who will be attending the class, please email to let us know whose tuition is being paid and the date of the class.
WHAT IF YOU WANT/NEED TO RESET YOUR DATE:
1. Call your Court and ask for permission to change the date.
If you want to come to an earlier class — space permitting, that’s not a problem and there’s no reset fee. Call first to make sure there's room.
THERE IS A RESET FEE:
AFTER THE 48 HOURS, the reset fee is $25, plus the regular $75 tuition ($100 total).
IF YOU MISS A CLASS and then want another class date, and the Court approves it, the reset fee is $25, bringing the total cost of the class to $100. Your reset fee must be received to reserve your place in the new class.

WHO TEACHES THIS CLASS:
Carol’s experience includes teaching in many settings — elementary, jr. high, high school, and adults — as a reading specialist, “learning disabilities” specialist, English as a second language teacher, and adult basic ed and high school completion/GED instructor. She’s fascinated with how things work — brains, body chemisty, gravity and physics, interpersonal dynamics, verbal and non-verbal communication, race cars, the math and physics of speed, you name it.
Jeff is an expert when it comes to riding motorcycles and mountain bikes. Plus he flies RC (remote control) airplanes and does geocaching. A total Oregonian, he likes family & friends, camping, fishing, running, hiking, and his 4 dogs.
WHO COMES TO THIS CLASS:
The purpose of the class is to assist students to think more clearly and have more control when they’re driving, thereby making themselves, as well as the others on the road with them, safer in their vehicles.
