In Honor of Frank Kenel
AMERICAN DRIVER AND TRAFFIC SAFETY EDUCATION ASSOCIATION
The American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association’s (ADTSEA) Teacher Excellence Award (TEA) sponsored by The National Road Safety Foundation (NRSF), honors outstanding driver and traffic safety educators.
The non-profit National Road Safety Foundation has been a strong supporter of driver education throughout its more than 50 years. NRSF produces and distributes, at no charge, educational films, teaching manuals and public service campaigns for use by professionals in driver education, traffic safety, public health and law enforcement. More than a million copies of the Foundation's films and materials have been distributed nationwide. Based in New York City, NRSF was founded in 1962 by Fraydun Manocherian, who as a teen, lost two friends to a drunk driver. For more information, visit www.nrsf.org.

Distracted Driving Month 2018
Distracted driving is a public health issue that affects us all. The latest statistics show motor vehicle fatalities are up 6% from 2015. More than 40,000 people were killed on our nation's roadways last year, and distracted driving is a major contributor.
Each death is 100% preventable. From cell phones to dashboard infotainment systems to evolving voice command features – all pose a threat to our safety. Just one second of your attention is all takes to change a life forever.
Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April is a united effort to recognize and eliminate preventable deaths from distracted driving. Join us to help save lives. Read more here.
Traffic Safety Facts Annual Report Tables
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has deployed a dynamic and interactive online portal for its annual traffic safety report - Traffic Safety Facts: A Compilation of Motor Vehicle Crash Data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System and the General Estimates System.
The portal can be accessed here.
This portal gives users the ability to generate the numerous descriptive statistics about traffic crashes of all severities, from those that result in property damage to those that result in the loss of human life. This portal fulfils a long-standing need to be able to provide the tables in a timelier and easily accessible manner. The portal now incorporates the feature to output the tables in various popular formats (Excel, pdf, etc.) while also providing features to request versions of the tables both at the national and state levels, where applicable. In addition, users can also generate historic versions of the tables.
The 2016 Young Drivers Traffic Safety Factsheet is available at here.
- In the 15- to 20-year old age group, driver fatalities had almost no change from 1,903 in 2015 to 1,908 in 2016, but the number of licensed young drivers increased by 2.1 percent.
- Nine percent of all drivers involved in fatal crashes in 2016 were 15 to 20 years old.
- Young drivers accounted for 5.4 percent of the total number of licensed drivers in the United States in 2016.
- Of the young drivers killed with known restraint use, 47 percent were unrestrained at the time of the crashes in 2016.
- Twenty-four percent of young drivers 15 to 20 years old who were killed in crashes in 2016 had blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) of .01 g/dL or higher; 82 percent of those young drivers had BACs of .08 g/dL or higher.
- In 2016, young drivers, male and female, were speeding at the time of the fatal crashes more than the other age groups with 32% compared to 31% for age 21-24 and 26% for age 25-34.
National Work Zone Awareness Week
National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 9 – 13, 2018. On average, over 700 fatalities occur in work zones each year. A work zone is an area where road construction, maintenance or utility work takes place. Safety for crews in work zones, as well as the vehicles that travel through them, is critically important. Drivers must be on watch for workers coming in and out of work zones, including flaggers who may be directing traffic patterns. Keep yourself and the people around you safe while traveling through them with these tips.
New State Law in Oregon 2019
Oregon New Crash Law 2019
‘Hit-and-run’ law clarifies duties of drivers
If you think you may have hit something, you will be required to investigate and report it
If you are involved in a traffic crash, especially a serious one with injuries or fatalities,
the event is traumatic and sometimes tragic. It may be difficult at such times to
remember the legal duties of a driver or vehicle owner involved in a crash –
requirements intended for the safety of people involved in the crash, as well as other
motorists and pedestrians.
A new Oregon law taking effect Jan. 1, 2019, will expand and clarify the duties of drivers
in potential “hit-and-run” situations.
