Holiday travel safety (posted 5/26/2017)
It's hard to focus on two messages

Stay safe this holiday weekend
A warm and sunny Memorial Day weekend means camping, water sports, barbecue and, for many, alcohol.
Designate a sober driver or call a ride service. Choose not to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The Washington County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with the Oregon Department of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, will be providing extra patrols over the holiday weekend to help keep the roads safe.
Slow down and avoid distractions. Use of handheld electronics is not permitted when driving, even when stopped in traffic. On average, distracted driving in Oregon causes at least one injury every three hours.
Don't give up until everyone buckles up - all motor vehicles passengers in Oregon must be buckled in to available seat belts and children under 8 must be in a proper child safety seat or booster seat. Seat belts save lives.
Practice water safety by staying sober when on the water and using approved safety flotation devices, especially for children. Hagg Lake offers of limited number of safety vests that visitors are encouraged to borrow.
Stay safe so this holiday weekend remains a happy one.
