  • It can be a dangerous profession

    Kendall.pngThe week of July 20 was a terrible week for the agency. On July 22, we lost ODOT Transportation Maintenance Specialist Don Kendall (pictured in the center of the photo) in an incident on a chip-seal project near Echo in eastern Oregon. A day later Diversified Concrete Cutting employee Glen McCoy lost his life in an incident on a project to install rumble strips on Interstate 84 near Boardman. These work-related fatalities remind us to support each other.

  • Is your child in the right seat?
    Riders learn safe practices during TEAM training.In Oregon last year, 997 child passengers under age eight were injured and three were killed in motor vehicles crashes – of these, 12 were riding totally unrestrained. Among 4- to 8-year-olds who, by law, should be riding in restraints designed for children, one in three was restrained in an adult belt system. It's critical that child passengers use the right safety restraint for their age, weight and size – and to help ensure this, law enforcement from local police agencies, sheriff offices and Oregon State Police will participate in the "Click It or Ticket" overtime campaign throughout the state from Aug. 25 – Sept. 7.
