Safety Spotlight
 Caution: More car, foot, bicycle traffic – school’s in! 
I Brake For KidsSALEM – School is back in session next week for almost everyone in Oregon, from kindergartners to high school seniors. That means it’s a good time to remind students, parents and motorists the importance of being vigilant. On average in Oregon, there are 240 crashes a year in school zones, and any of those could be tragic. Over the past five years, six people have lost their lives in crashes that occurred in Oregon’s school zones.
