Road Aware® helps teens anticipate hazards before they get behind the wheel.
Teens usually have better reaction times than older adults – so why do teens crash at least four times as often as other drivers? One reason is that teens haven’t learned what to look for while driving … Driving is more than just reacting. Driving requires learning from your experience so that you can better anticipate hazards.
http://teendriving.statefarm.com/images/roadtrip/roadTrips_video.png       Based on state-of-the-art computer simulator research at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, Road Aware® is a web-based training program that simulates hazards in the driving environment. Road Aware® provides teens with experience in recognizing and anticipating common driving hazards that they might not otherwise see. And it allows teens to make mistakes and learn from them without putting them or anyone else on the road at risk.

Safety on the Road

  • In 2015, more than 38,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes; some of these fatalities involved people who drive for a living. According to Injury Facts 2016, the Council’s annual report on unintentional injuries, the three biggest causes of fatalities on the road include:
    1. Alcohol (30.8%)
    2. Speeding (30%)
    3. Distracted driving (26%)

Winter Driving Tips
Severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous for automobile travel. Motorists should know the safety rules for dealing with winter road emergencies. AAA reminds motorists to be cautious while driving in adverse weather. For more information on winter driving, the association offers the How to Go on Ice and Snow brochure, available through most AAA offices. Contact your local AAA club for more information.
AAA recommends the following winter driving tips:

  • Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks.
  • Never run a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
  • Make certain your tires are properly inflated.
  • Keep your gas tank at least half full.
  • If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather

The Road to Safety
The push to reduce traffic fatalities is getting stronger.

This holiday season, millions of Americans will take to the roads. Fortunately, the nation has made amazing progress over the past few decades to make those roads safer. The rate for people killed per mile driven has steadily dropped for years, according to data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Not only are the cars themselves safer, but drivers are better educated, and streets and highways are becoming better designed or adapted to keep everyone on them (not just drivers) safe.

July 22, 1947- Nov. 21, 2016
Due to a sudden onset of symptoms, Linda cancelled a long anticipated adventure to Sri Lanka. Sadly, less than a month later, her family and countless friends are grieving the death of this Salt Lake City native. Daughter of Bill & Clara Mayne, Linda was known for her wit, intellect, curiosity, loyalty, authenticity, and integrity.
Throughout her 33 years at Olympus High School, Linda was committed to educating, coaching, mentoring, and inspiring thousands of students--many who credit her as the "Greatest Single Influence" in their lives. After a brief retirement, Linda did the same for teachers statewide as the Health, Physical Education, and Drivers Education Specialist for the Utah State Board of Education.
Often described as a renaissance woman, Linda loved spending leisure time bird watching, star gazing and rock licking! Having fun with friends and family--whether playing the ukulele, chasing golf balls, attending cultural events, riding bikes, watching "her Cowboys," discussing books, camping in P Floyd, or sharing a good meal--were among her many passions. Linda enriched the lives of many, above all, that of her wife Tika, who is grateful beyond measure for all they shared, her loving sisters Eileen Mears and Judie Kesson, brother Ken Mayne, and adoring nieces and nephews.
If you are among the lucky ones who benefited from knowing Linda, please join the family to Celebrate Linda's Life & Legacy on Sunday, January 15, 2017, 1-3 pm, at the Jewish Community Center (2 North Medical Drive). The family invites you to continue Linda's support of the Clark Planetarium, ACLU of Utah/LGBT Rights, or Cancer Wellness House with a donation in her name. Online condolences may be extended at www.larkinmortuary.com - See more here.
