Caltrans: Teen Drivers Safe Driving Skills


CALTRANS LAUNCHES INTERACTIVE GAME TO TEACH TEEN DRIVERS SAFE DRIVING SKILLS IN HIGHWAY WORK ZONES
Campaign Supports National Teen Driver Safety Week Awareness

SACRAMENTO – In an effort to fight distracted driving and raise public awareness during National Teen Driver Safety Week, October 19-25, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is joining with the Office of Traffic Safety and California Highway Patrol to launch an interactive, mobile and online game called “Distraction Zone” that helps educate teen drivers about safe driving. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for 14- to 18-year-olds in the United States.

“Playing the Distraction Zone game will provide teens with lifelong skills that will not only help keep these young drivers safe, but protect highway workers,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty.

According to 2012 data from The National Highway Traffic Safety Association, among drivers 15- to 19-years-old who were distracted in fatal crashes, nearly 1 in 5 were distracted by their phones. Speeding is also a common contributing factor in fatal crashes. In 2012, speeding was a factor in almost half (48 percent) of the crashes that killed 15- to 20-year-old drivers.

The Distraction Zone game is specifically designed to reinforce key safe driving behaviors like avoiding distractions, being alert, and slowing down when approaching highway work zones. The mobile and online format helps get teen drivers engaged while actively learning safe driving skills. Mobile versions of the game are available for download on the App Store and Google Play and the online version is played at www.DistractionZone.com. As always, teens should not play the game or text while driving.

An added incentive to entice teen game play is a contest being run by the campaign’s media partner, iHeart Media. The Distraction Zone contest invites teen players to submit their highest game score for a chance to win cash prizes. The top prize, donated by iHeart Media, is $500. Players can play multiple times to achieve their best score and enter the contest between now and June 15, 2015.

The Distraction Zone campaign also includes a safe driving education program for high schools called the Distraction Zone School Challenge. This program calls on student leaders to create an on-campus traffic safety event as part of a competition to win a cash grant up to $2,000 for their school, which is also donated by iHeart Media. Applications to enter the competition are due by December 1, 2014.

City of Bishop: Warren Street Construction


Public Works News Release
Warren Street Construction Starts Next Week

City of Bishop water and sewer construction along Warren Street and intersecting streets is expected to start Monday, 20 October and last into early December. The construction of street improvements in the area is expected to start in January and last into May.

The water and sewer contractor plans to start work on a new waterline along South Street west of Main Street next Monday. Water line construction work on South Street is expected to take more than one week. After the water line on South Street is installed, the contractor plans to start construction on new sewer line on Academy Avenue near Main Street. Other water and sewer work in the Warren Street area will follow and will continue into December. The contractor on the $500,000 water and sewer project is Marzano and Sons of June Lake. Funds for the water and sewer improvements come from monthly fees paid by City of Bishop water and sewer customers.

This construction in downtown Bishop will impact traffic on city streets west of Main Street. Traffic can be heavy so the work will cause inconvenience and delays. Equipment, workers, and uneven pavement will require attention. All efforts will be made to maintain access to businesses and to minimize the impacts and restrictions, but drivers and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient.
