(Portland, OR)  --  Protesters are calling on the Oregon Department of Transportation to adopt a "Vision Zero" plan to eliminate traffic fatalities.  Demonstrators staged a "die-in" yesterday in front of the ODOT's Portland offices to draw attention to the four-thousand-678 people killed last year on Oregon's roadways.  Protesters lied on the ground with chalk outlines around their bodies and also rang a bell once for each victim.  The Portland Bureau of Transportation has adopted a Vision Zero plan with the goal of eliminating traffic fatalities completely, but ODOT has yet to follow suit.
