UPDATE: Saturday, June 29, 2013, 3:30 p.m.

MISSION UPDATE:

At approximately 1:30 pm on Saturday June 29th search crews working with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue located what appears to be a body on Mt. Hood.

Oregon Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter crews provided a location which revealed a body located near the Hood River County line near the top of the Sandy Glacier. The altitude is approximately 8400 feet. There are no signs of life. It was not safe at that time to have teams get close enough to confirm the identity of the subject.

There is a high probability it is Dr. Kinley Adams. The area in which the body was located is on very difficult and technical terrain. Due to the extreme risk teams will not be able to get to the area today. As the day gets warmer, risks of rock and snow slide increase.

Plans are underway to launch a recovery team early tomorrow morning. Risk assessments will be made each step of the way. Sheriff Craig Roberts extends his thoughts and condolences to the family and friends who have been very supportive of the search efforts during this difficult time.

The Sheriff's Office would like to thank:
* Oregon Army National Guard
* Portland Mountain Rescue
* Air Force 304th Rescue Squadron
* Mountain Wave Communications
* Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue
* American Medical Response Reach and Treat
* Hood River Crag Rats
* National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration / National Weather Service
* Corvallis Mountain Rescue
* Deschutes County
* Eugene Mountain Rescue
* American Red Cross
* Estacada Fire Department
* Clackamas County Chaplain
* Timberline Lodge
* Yakima
* Ski Patrol and Rescue Team from the Seattle area
* Benton County Sheriff's Office
* Hood River County Sheriff's Office
* Family and Friends of Dr. Adams

#END#





At this writing (Tuesday, June 25, 2013, 3:25 p.m.), adverse weather conditions are preventing SAR teams from searching at higher altitudes on Mt. Hood as they continue looking for overdue climber Kinley Adams.

SAR teams are continuing lower-elevation searches (below 9,000 feet), and plan to expand the search area at lower elevations.

Sheriff's Office SAR Coordinators plan to continue searching through the weekend.

A National Guard helicopter remains on standby.

PUBLIC'S HELP SOUGHT:

The Sheriff's Office is asking members of the public if they've seen Mr. Adams while climbing on Mt. Hood on Saturday.

Attached to this update is a collage of photos of Kinley Adams in clothing he is believed to have worn on his Saturday climb.

If any members of the public encountered Kinley Adams on Mt. Hood on Saturday, they are urged to contact the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office using our Tip Line -- by telephone at 503-723-4949 or by using the online e-mail form at http://www.clackamas.us/sheriff/forms/tip.html

[END UPDATE]
____________

EARLIER: Tuesday 6/25/13 6am

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is continuing search and rescue efforts for missing climber Kinley Adams on Mt. Hood today. Mr. Adams has been missing since 06/23/2013 when he went to Mt. Hood and attempted to climb the Leuthold Coulour.

Mountain Rescue resources departed the command post at approximately 5:00 AM by snow cat in effort to reach Crater Rock and the Reid Headwall while there is a small break in the weather. Search teams have been asked to do a safety assessment in terms of climbing and if it is safe to do so they will be searching in the area.

A second group of climbers is set to depart around 8:00 and will be searching in lower elevations. Volunteers from Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue will be climbing upwards from the area of Ramona Falls towards the Reid Glacier with a spotting scope in hopes of locating Mr. Adams at lower elevations or through the spotting scope.

Optimism remains high that Mr. Adams is still alive and just in need of assistance.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the following groups for their assistance in searching today: Seattle Mountain Rescue, Corvallis Mountain Rescue, Portland Mountain Rescue, Hood River Crag Rats, Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, 304th Air Force Reserve, and Mt. Wave Communications.

#END UPDATE 2#
___________

EARLIER: 6/24/13 1130am:

The missing subject is Kinley Adams, age 59, from Salem Oregon.

Search crews are facing adverse weather conditions-- rain, wind, cold temperatures, low visibility and snow. The new soft, wet snow creates additional hazards for searchers. Search teams are unable to go above the 9000 ft level due to near white out conditions.

Search efforts will continue at lower elevations and plans will be made for the coming days based on weather conditions. A National Guard helicopter is on standby for a break in the weather.

Agencies currently working with the Clackamas County Search and Rescue are:
* Airforce 304th Rescue Squadron out of Portland
* Mountain Wave communications
* Portland Mountain Rescue
* AMR
* Crag Rats out of Corvallis
* Air support from the Army National Guard Aviation unit in Salem.

#END UPDATE#
________

EARLIER:

Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Team are currently coordinating a search on Mt. Hood for an overdue climber. The Sheriff's Office was notified by family members at about 9 pm, Saturday evening of an overdue climber who was supposed to return at 3 pm. The climber is a male from Salem, his vehicle was located unoccupied in the parking lot of Timberline Lodge. The male registered in the climbing log at Timberline Lodge and his climbing route noted he would be climbing the Leuthold Couloir route. He is believed to be an experience climber and has climbed this route before.

Searchers were able to summit the mountain via the Leuthold Couloir route but did not locate any evidence of the overdue climber. Due to worsening weather conditions searchers returned to the lodge. Searchers reported a near white out and worsening climbing conditions. Coordinators are currently making plans to search again tomorrow if conditions allow.

Volunteer searchers from Portland Mountain Rescue, Mountain Wave Communications, American Medical Response Reach and Treat Team, and Hood River Crag Rats participated in the search. These groups will be back again to search tomorrow as well as other volunteer groups from around the state.

More information and the identity of the overdue climber should be released early tomorrow morning.

On the morning of May 29th at 5:30 AM Longview Fire was dispatched to a reported structure fire located at 537 Oregon W ay, in Longview. The reporting party indicated they heard snapping and crackle that woke them, and immediately called 911. When fire crews pulled out of the Fire Station located at 740 Commerce Way they could see a large thermal column of smoke from the area indicating a working fire.

Upon arrival firefighter's identified a single family vacant residence that was well involved in fire. The home immediately next door was in close proximity - firefighter's initial actions included protecting the neighboring structure and extinguishing the exterior portion of the fire. Once knocked down firefighter's performed a primary search to rule out the possibility of "Squatters" occupying the structure. The building was declared clear of occupants and the fire was under control within approximately 15 minutes from arrival. To protect firefighters working on scene Oregon Way was closed to traffic.

On May 23, 2013 Longview Fire responded to a fire located this same location (See Press Release titled "Early Morning Structure Fire Concerns Neighbors" dated 6/23/13).

Fire Investigators from Longview Fire are processing an origin and cause investigation on today's fire. Early indications suggest the fire started on the outside of the building, similarly to the prior fire. Fire investigators are treating the fire as suspicious in nature.

The property owner was notified of the fire and reported to the scene. He advised investigators that the home had been vacant for several years and he will most likely be tearing the structure down. There were no injuries reported, and Oregon Way was open for traffic flow at approximately 6:30 AM.

PORTLAND FIRE & RESCUE RESPONDS TO A RESIDENTIAL FIRE ON N.E. SANDY BLVD.


News Release from Portland Fire & Rescue
Posted on FlashAlert: June 28th, 2013 6:52 PM
Firefighters were dispatched to a fire at 2712 N.E. Sandy Blvd this afternoon (3:53 pm). The fire started on the steps outside of the home and quickly spread to the walls. Station 13 arrived first and verified that everyone was out. Additional fire crews arrived and began cutting inspection holes into the walls to make sure that the fire did not extend into other areas of the house.

Fire investigators say that the fire cause was a cigarette that was not properly disposed of. "This fire serves as a reminder of disposing of cigarette butts in proper containers, such as metal containers with plenty of sand inside." said Ron Rouse, a Portland Fire & Rescue spokesperson.

No one was injured during this incident and investigators estimate the damage at $6000.

Four people from Eugene, Oregon received non-life threatening injuries Friday afternoon when a driver lost control of a pickup following a tire malfunction along Interstate 5 north of Ashland. OSP Central Point Area Command office is completing the investigation.

According to Senior Trooper Tom Harrison, on June 28, 2013 at approximately 3:30 p.m., a 1998 Ford Ranger pickup with a canopy-covered bed area driven by KYLE SHOULDERS, age 41, was southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 20 when one of the tires blew out. SHOULDERS lost control as the pickup traveled into the center median and rolled until coming to rest on its top across the two northbound lanes.

An approaching commercial truck driver swerved, narrowly missing the overturned pickup. His name is not available but his actions may have prevented serious injury to 3 people by avoiding the pickup.

The driver and two front passengers, a 14-year old male and 21-year old female, were able to crawl out of the overturned pickup on their own power. A passenger in the covered pickup bed, AMY SHOULDERS, age 41, was ejected with the canopy out of the bed area.

All four were transported by ambulance to Rogue Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Jackson County Sheriff's Office, Phoenix Police Department, Talent Police Department, Ashland Fire & Rescue, Jackson County Fire District 5, and ODOT assisted at the scene.

The northbound lanes were blocked about one hour but traffic was getting past the scene on the right shoulder.

contracted with the Hillsboro School District. He was primarily assisting with the Special
Education classes at Lincoln Elementary School in Hillsboro. Mr. Abinacer occasionally
assisted in over ten other schools. He was employed with the school district since March,
2013. Sheriff's Detectives are concerned with Mr. Abinacer's access to children in the
schools. There currently are no reports of any victims from the schools.

City of Beaverton Maintains Roads With 30 Street Overlays This Summer

CITY OF BEAVERTON MAINTAINS ROADS WITH 30 STREET OVERLAYS THIS SUMMER


News Release from City of Beaverton
Posted on FlashAlert: June 28th, 2013 3:45 PM
Photo/sound file: The city’s street construction crew maintains 220 miles of city streets, 24 bridges, 16 culverts, and 14 miles of pedestrian paths.
The City of Beaverton public works department will be busy with street overlays this summer. Beginning July 8, city street crews will work through September to overlay 30 city streets.

"We care about our streets," said Mayor Denny Doyle. "These kinds of projects help us keep our roads in good conditions and our maintenance costs down. Safe and good roads are a top priority in Beaverton."

The list of roads that will be overlaid includes:

* Main Avenue from Allen Boulevard to Fifth Street
* Fifth Street from Stott Avenue to Watson Avenue
* Sixth Street from Stott Avenue to Angel Avenue
* Seventh Street from Main Avenue to Watson Avenue
* Eighth Street from Main Avenue to Watson Avenue
* Ninth Street from Main Avenue to Watson Avenue
* Tenth Street from Stott Avenue to Watson Avenue
* Twelfth Street from Main Avenue to Watson Avenue
* Thirteenth Street from Main Avenue to Hall Boulevard
* Watson Avenue from Farmington Road to Fifth Street
* Bany Road from end of jurisdiction to SW 160th Avenue
* Canby Court from 170th Avenue to the end of the street
* Sumac Street from 160th Avenue to 162nd Place
* Burntwood Way from 162nd Place to 160th Avenue
* 160th Avenue From Hart Road to Sumac Street
* 161st Place from the end of the street to Sumac Street
* Melinda Street from 160th Avenue to 166th Terrace
* 169th Avenue from Canby Court to the end of City jurisdiction
* El Rancho Court from 160th Avenue to the end of the street
* Remudo Lane from Sorrento Road to Connemara Terrace
* Connemara Terrace from the end of the cul-de-sac to the new pavement.
* Palmer Way from Tierra Del Mar Drive to Forest Drive
* Tierra Del Mar Drive from Palmer Way to Palmer Way (makes a "U" shape)
* Forest Drive from Hart Road to Hart Road (makes a "U" shape)
* Forest Place from Forest Drive to the end of the street
* Murray Boulevard from Scholls Ferry Road to the bridge
* Barrows Road from Walnut Street to the BPA powerlines
* Cirrus Drive from Nimbus Avenue to Hall Boulevard
* Cascade Avenue from Scholls Ferry Road to Hall Boulevard

A street pavement overlay consists of grinding off some of the old asphalt and placing back compacted hot mix asphalt, including adjusting all utilities to the new street elevation. This approach to pavement preservation provides improved ride quality, reduces the overall cost of maintaining the street, reduces noise levels, and adds curb appeal and value to homes in the neighborhood. Major resurfacing projects such as asphalt overlays are prioritized through the use of field inspections and pavement management software.

The summer street overlays are expected to be completed by the end of September. Overlays require dry weather. Notification letters are sent to affected neighborhoods two weeks prior to the beginning of each street overlay. For more information, please contact Debbie Martisak at 503-350-4084.

The city's street construction crew maintains 220 miles of city streets, 24 bridges, 16 culverts, and 14 miles of pedestrian paths.

In 2013, Beaverton was again recognized as the safest city in Oregon. Since 2007, Beaverton has been named one of the safest cities in the Northwest. In 2012, the city was awarded the Mayors' Climate Protection Award from the U.S. Conference of Mayors. It was one of just four cities of its size recently recognized as a "Smarter City" energy leader by the Natural Resources Defense Council and one of the 100 Best Places to Live in America by Money magazine.

The City of Beaverton and the Beaverton Arts Commission will present the innovative Ten Tiny Dances on Saturday, July 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Presented in partnership with the Beaverton Farmers Market, Ten Tiny Dances is a free, public event that features a wide-variety of dancers who represent mode rn, contemporary and traditional ethnic dance forms.

This year's performances include Northwest break dance, Korean fan dance, four styles of Native American dance, Traditional Ghanaian dance, innovative contemporary dance, and more.

To fully experience Ten Tiny Dances, pick up a program, map and instructions at 10 a.m. at the Beaverton Farmers Market stage at SW 5th Street and Hall Boulevard.

Update: Drowning Death Investigation - Lincoln City Area Beach at D River Wayside

UPDATE: DROWNING DEATH INVESTIGATION - LINCOLN CITY AREA BEACH AT D RIVER WAYSIDE


News Release from Oregon State Police
Posted on FlashAlert: June 28th, 2013 2:39 PM
Update Note: Victim is from Vancouver, Washington

***

A 54-year old woman died Friday morning in a drowning accident off a Lincoln City-area beach state wayside. Oregon State Police (OSP) and Lincoln County Medical Examiner are conducting the death investigation. With the upcoming hot weather and expected influx of visitors and others recreating at Oregon's beaches, safety information and tips are provided at the end of this release.

On June 28, 2013 at approximately 10:00 a.m., the victim and her 23-year old daughter went swimming off the beach at D River Wayside State Recreation Area (http://bit.ly/18laqjT). About 15 minutes into their swim, both women were pulled out by a rip current and began to yell for help toward people on the beach. The daughter was able to swim away from the rip current and back to shore. The victim disappeared for several minutes before being spotted face down in the water off shore.

Emergency responders from North Lincoln Fire & Rescue, Pacific West Ambulance, US Coast Guard, and OSP went to the scene. The victim was retrieved from the water and transported by ambulance to Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital where she later was pronounced deceased.

The victim was visiting the area from Vancouver, Washington, with her husband and daughter. They have requested withholding her name until they had sufficient time to make other notifications. OSP will send out an updated news release when family has advised it is OK to release. (Please note this may not be for a couple days)

According to Oregon Parks & Recreation Department website, "rip currents are strong currents of water that rush out to sea. They are stronger than even the best swimmer. These currents can swiftly sweep unwary beachcombers and waders off their feet and out to sea. Rip currents may appear as dark, choppy water. Any time you see debris and foam floating out to sea, chances are you have found a rip current. Avoid the area."

Water safety experts advise if one is caught in a rip current, don't panic. Swim parallel to the beach until you are out of the current, then head for the beach.

Additional beach safety tips are available on the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department website at:

Health advisories lifted for water contact at Seaside and Cannon beaches

HEALTH ADVISORIES LIFTED FOR WATER CONTACT AT SEASIDE AND CANNON BEACHES


News Release from Oregon Health Authority
Posted on FlashAlert: June 28th, 2013 2:36 PM
June 28, 2013

Health advisories for contact with marine water at Seaside Beach and Cannon Beach in Clatsop County were lifted today by the Oregon Health Authority.

The advisories were issued Thursday after water samples at Seaside Beach and Cannon Beach showed higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria. Results from subsequent samples taken by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality showed contamination has subsided, and the water no longer poses a higher-than-normal risk associated with water contact activities.

State officials encourage recreational activities at all Oregon beaches, suggesting only that water contact be avoided when advisories are in effect.

Since 2003, state officials have used a federal Environmental Protection Agency grant to monitor popular Oregon beaches and make timely reports to the public about elevated levels of fecal bacteria. Oregon state agencies participating in this program are Oregon Public Health, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

For more information contact the Beach Monitoring Program at 971-673-0400 or www.healthoregon.org/beach. Also contact the Oregon Public Health toll-free information line at 1-877-290-6767.

Bid on Water Facility Brings Savings for Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership

BID ON WATER FACILITY BRINGS SAVINGS FOR LAKE OSWEGO TIGARD WATER PARTNERSHIP


News Release from City of Lake Oswego
Posted on FlashAlert: June 28th, 2013 2:33 PM
LAKE OSWEGO - On June 27, 2013, the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership received bids from seven prequalified general contractors for construction of its drinking water treatment plant. The responsive low bid was submitted by Slayden Construction Group, in the amount of $66,101,464, about $4 million below project estimates. The water treatment plant is the largest facility in the Partnership's program to upgrade Lake Oswego's water system to serve both communities.

"This is good news for our ratepayers," said Lake Oswego Mayor, Kent Studebaker. "A positive financing climate, lower than expected construction bids and the opportunity to have a partner (Tigard) help us save money in the long run."

This savings adds to the savings on the first project to be bid, the river intake pump station in Gladstone. That project was awarded to Slayden Construction Group as well for $10.5 million, about $1.5 million less than the engineer's estimate. The Lake Oswego City Council is scheduled to award the water treatment plant contract on July 16.

"Today is a significant milestone," said Tigard Mayor John Cook. "It's time to get to work on this important project so that we can provide our community with the water it needs while providing opportunities to create over 2,200 family-wage jobs.

The water treatment plant is one of five facilities that will be upgraded and modernized to serve both communities. Other facilities to be bid in the future include 9.6 miles of pipeline in Lake Oswego, West Linn, Gladstone and Tigard, a new water reservoir in Lake Oswego and a new pump station in Tigard.

For questions about the bids, please contact Joel Komarek, Project Director at 503-697-6588. For project information, contact Jane Heisler, Communications Director at 503-697-6502, or go to lotigardwater.org.

The City of Vancouver's Water Resources Education Center has been selected by E3 Washington in the 2013 Government Agency category for a 'Green Apple Award.' The statewide award recognizes the Water Center and its staff for being leaders in environmental and sustainability education programs. Jennifer Pritchard, E3 Washington Green Apple Awards Chair, said, "The Water Center stood out to the Awards Committee as a prime example of a government agency working to provide engaging environmental exhibits and programs to their local community. In particular, the Watershed Monitoring Network stood out for its efforts in promoting water conservation and helping students become advocates in their community."

E3 Washington is an initiative developed by the Environmental Education Association of Washington (EEAW). 'E3' stands for education, environment and economy. E3 Washington integrates these three systems and promotes achieving a healthy, prosperous, and sustainable future for all.

Rich McConaghy, Environmental Resources Manager and Director of the Water Center, expressed his thanks for all whose efforts contributed to achieving this recognition. "I am very proud of our staff and our partners whose hard work and dedication engages and inspires students of all ages to learn more about our natural resources," he said.

The core mission of the Water Resources Education Center is to teach people of all ages to care for and make wise decisions about water. Since its opening in 1996, more than 3,000 students visit the Water Center annually as they learn about water, sustainability and the environment. Throughout the years, the Water Center has evolved and adapted to changing needs in the community and in education. Through programs and events, the Water Center has inspired students to adopt portions of local waterways, promote water conservation and become stewards.

The Water Center, part of the City's Public Works Department, is free and open to the public six days a week. Classroom activities, 350-gallon native species aquarium, hands-on exhibits, computer games and aquaria with frog and toads are popular with visitors of all ages. School and group field trips offer many learning opportunities including exploration of nearly 50 acres of protected wetlands and tours of the adjacent Marine Park Water Reclamation Facility. Puddles Place also offers an interactive space for parents and children ages 1 to 5 years. The newest addition to the Water Center is a three-dimensional, salmon lifecycle exhibit created from reclaimed materials, helping visitors learn about native fish, recycling and stewardship for our environment.

ABOUT THE WATER RESOURCES EDUCATION CENTER:
Overlooking the Columbia River, the City of Vancouver's Water Resources Education Center offers exhibits, events and educational programs designed to teach us all how to be excellent stewards of water resources and how to use water wisely. The Water Center, a division of the City's Department of Public Works, is also caretaker of one of the metropolitan area's few remaining natural Columbia River riparian areas, nearly 50 protected acres of adjacent wetlands providing feeding, nesting and resting habitat for more than 120 species of fish and wildlife. The Water Center is part of the Vancouver National Historic Reserve.

The Water Center's general hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays. From Interstate 5 or Interstate 205, take state Highway 14 to Exit 1. Turn south under the highway, then east at the Columbia Shores intersection onto Columbia Way and head east about 3 miles to the Water Center.

Hot Weather + Upcoming Holiday Traffic = Right Time To Plan For Safe Travels on Our Roads

HOT WEATHER + UPCOMING HOLIDAY TRAFFIC = RIGHT TIME TO PLAN FOR SAFE TRAVELS ON OUR ROADS


News Release from Oregon State Police
Posted on FlashAlert: June 28th, 2013 11:08 AM
Photo/sound file: /images/news/2013-06/1002/65515/Drive_sober.jpg
Oregon State Police (OSP), Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), and law enforcement partners statewide urge all travelers during the upcoming Fourth of July holiday weekend, and the hot days ahead leading to the holiday, to partner with us in keeping our roads safe for everyone.

Last year's 30-hour Fourth of July holiday period was only the second time Oregon recorded no traffic fatalities during the deadliest major holiday period of the year on Oregon roads. This year's holiday period covers a much larger time period - 102 hours - starting 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 3, through 11:59 p.m., Sunday, July 7.

"Some of our deadliest holidays occur during the Fourth of July period, so to prevent fatal traffic crashes on our roads requires increased police enforcement and drivers doing everything they can to travel safely," said Captain Ted Phillips, director of the OSP Patrol Services Division.

Law enforcement's main focus will be the crackdown to catch and arrest impaired drivers who put themselves and others at risk. Oregon law enforcement agencies are joining others nationwide as part of the ongoing "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" crackdown, which involves stepped up enforcement efforts aimed at stopping impaired drivers before they become involved in a traffic crash or cause a tragic highway incident.

The latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), underscore the continuing toll drunk driving imposes on the nation. Impaired driving crashes killed 9,878 people in 2011, accounting for 31 percent of the total traffic fatalities in the United States. That's an average of one alcohol-impaired-driving fatality every 53 minutes, according to NHTSA. The percentage spikes around the Fourth of July.

Statistics gathered by Oregon's Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) over the past 25 years show nearly half of all Fourth of July period traffic fatalities were in alcohol-involved crashes. Three-hundred people have died during the Fourth of July holiday period since 1970; more than 50 of those deaths during the last ten years.

The anticipated warmer weather, coupled with Fourth of July celebrations, often extends celebrations and gatherings well into the evening and night. According to NHTSA, statistics reflect the combined dangers of alcohol and night driving. In 2011, the proportion of alcohol impairment among drivers involved in fatal crashes was almost 4.5 times higher at night.

OSP, Oregon State Sheriffs' Association (OSSA), and Oregon Association Chiefs of Police (OACP) reminds everyone that while death and injury are of course the most serious of possible consequences of drunk driving, there are other consequences that can affect lives for many years, including loss of a driver license, vehicle impoundment, jail time, lawyer and court costs, and insurance hikes, just to name a few.

OSP, OSSA, OACP, and ODOT offer the following safety reminders to help keep your holiday travels safe:

* Get rested before you are tested. Fatigued drivers are more frequent during holiday weekends because of increased travel and activity. Be patient and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
* Pay attention. An inattentive driver is a growing safety concern on our roads and an increasing factor in traffic crashes.
* Know before you go: Stay up to date on road conditions by visiting TripCheck.com or calling 5-1-1.
* Even when workers are not present, all work zone speed limits still apply and fines double. Inactive work zones still have equipment, detours, and incomplete changes in the roadway so drivers need to slow down and be alert.
* Share the road. Don't tailgate and be sure to check your mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes.
* Be on the lookout for bicyclists, pedestrians and other vulnerable users of our roads.
* Always use safety restraints and child safety seats correctly (see www.childsafetyseat.org for proper buckling tips and other information).
* If traveling on our roads, bring non-alcoholic refreshments and water to help stay hydrated. This could really come in handy if your vehicle unexpectedly breaks down along a highway and you have to wait for help.
* Don't drink and drive; don't be impaired and drive. These can be deadly combinations.
* MOVE OVER if you are approaching any type of emergency vehicle, tow truck or roadside assistance vehicle which is stopped on the roadside with emergency lights activated.

OSP, OSSA, OACP and ODOT remind every traveling person - bicyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists and motorists alike - that we all have individual responsibility for keeping our roads safe. Immediately report aggressive, dangerous and intoxicated drivers to 9-1-1 or call OSP at 1-800-24DRUNK (800-243-7865).
