WINTER DRIVING - PART 2

Last week's Tip of the Week focused on being prepared for getting out on the road in winter weather. This week week's tips from ODOT's Oregon Winter Driving Guide are about how to drive safely in icy and snowy weather conditions.

ADJUST YOUR DRIVING FOR THE CONDITIONS
* DON'T use cruise control in wet, icy or snowy weather.
* Position your hands on the steering wheel at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock, or lower.
* If you lose traction, gradually slow down. DON'T slam on the brakes!
* The key to keeping your vehicle under maximum control on slippery surfaces is smoothly steering, braking and accelerating. Steer just enough to follow the path you intend to go.
* Be prepared to handle potentially dangerous situations by thinking "15 seconds" ahead about your options. These include controlling your speed, changing lanes or communicating with others on the road.
* Use extra caution when driving on bridges or concrete highways because ice forms first on these surfaces.
* Avoid driving through snowdrifts. They can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
* Slow down in advance of shaded areas (especially curves) where ice and snow are the last to melt.
* Finally, chain up early! Weather conditions can deteriorate rapidly and unexpectedly at this time of year.

There is also a handy checklist in ODOT's Driving Guide to help you be prepared for winter driving before heading out on the road.

WINTER DRIVING - PART 1

Welcome to winter!! Driving can be a little more hazardous during this time of year. That doesn't mean you have to stay home and hibernate until spring. It does mean, however, that it may take a little more time and planning than usual before heading out. The following information from ODOT comes from their Oregon Winter Driving Guide.

TUNE UP YOUR VEHICLE
* Make sure your antifreeze is good to -25°. Check and fill your windshield washer and other fluids and make sure hoses are not loose or brittle.
* Keep your wipers clean and in good condition.
* Make sure your heater and defroster are working.
* Be sure your battery is fully charged and that cables are not loose nor corroded.
* Check to see that tires are properly inflated and in good condition.
* Carry chains or use tractions devices. Look for signs indicating when chairs or traction tires are required. Pull over to the right of the highway as far as possible or into a "chain up" area when required. (Tip: it's the law!)

TAKE YOUR TIME
* Before you go, check weather and road conditions at www.TripCheck.com. You can also call 5-1-1 for travel information.
* Let family or friends know your routes and destination. Then be sure to check in when you've safely arrived.
* Choose main routes and get plenty of rest before starting out. Remember that cell phone coverage may not be available in some areas.
* Keep your gas tank at least half full and keep your windows, lights, and mirrors cleared of any ice, snow or frost.
* Drive with your lights on at all times and reduce your speed.
* Watch out for snow plows! Following too close is dangerous for them and for you.
* Don't pass the snow plow or sanders! Be patient. Everyone wants to arrive safely where they are going.

Watch for next week's Winter Driving Tips which focus on how to drive safely in icy and snowy weather.

Tip of the Week January 8, 2018 - BULLYING - 01/04/18

BULLYING

Bullying among our youth is a significant problem--and it is steadily increasing. Many experts fear bullying has become so widespread and common that adults are blinded to its extensive harm. So what is bullying behavior? The National Education Association states that "Bullying is the chronic infliction of physical hurt and/or psychological distress on another person, usually through an imbalance of power." It can involve direct physical contact, verbal attacks intended to cause emotional harm, or indirect actions of social aggression intended to embarrass or isolate. Verbal or social bullying can be just as damaging, or even more so, than physical bullying.

Here are the facts:
* According to the National Education Association, it is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students.
* A survey conducted by the American Association of University Women reported that 83% of girls and 79% of boys have been sexually harassed in some form and only 18% of those incidents were perpetrated by adults.
* Young bullies carry a one-in-four chance of having a criminal record by age 30. (Study by Leonard Eron and Rowell Huesman)
* American schools harbor approximately 2.1 million bullies and 2.7 million of their victims. (Dan Olweus, National School Safety Center)
* One in seven students is either a bully or a victim.
* 56% of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school.
* 15% of all school absenteeism is directly related to fears of being bullied at school.
* 71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.
* Mean behavior among kids is a universal problem. In a poll of 232 kids in kindergarten through 8th grade at a Connecticut elementary school, every child claimed to have been the victim of at least one schoolmate's or sibling's meanness in the previous month. (Research conducted and reported by Dr. Michele Borba)

Your Lincoln County Sheriff's Office encourages parents to educate their children about the damaging effects of bullying. Bullying not only harms those who fall victim to bullying behavior, but also those who damage their own character in the act of bullying which can lead to possible detrimental implications for them in life. When bullying occurs, nobody wins.

Tip of the Week January 1, 2018 - HOW TO DISPLAY YOUR HOUSE NUMBER - 12/28/17

TIP OF THE WEEK

Date: January 1, 2018 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Sheriff Curtis Landers

HOW TO DISPLAY YOUR HOUSE NUMBER

Emergency response teams cannot find you if your house number is not clearly displayed. In fact, a majority of them are not visible from the street, especially at night. A badly displayed number can cost you precious time in an emergency. The following guidelines will help you know How to Display Your House Number.

On Your House
1. The number should be posted so that it is visible from both directions of travel.
2. Trees, bushes or other debris should not block visibility from the road.
3. Numbers should be placed above eye level near the front door within a radius of the porch light.
4. Avoid placing numbers away from the front door such as above garage doors.

On Your Mailbox
1. Remember to mark your mailbox on both sides, but do not use your mailbox as the only means of identification for your house.
2. Numbers on the mailbox door may be great for your mail carrier, but they are extremely difficult to be seen by drivers.
3. The numbers on the mailbox need to be highly visible, so if you choose stickers, white letters on a black mailbox will be easily seen as will black letters on a white mailbox. Shiny silver numbers on a black
mailbox are NOT visible.
4. Another option is to mount a sign above or below the mailbox making sure the sign color contrasts from the mailbox color.
5. If your mailbox is not in front of your house or near your driveway, emergency responders cannot locate you unless you have your house number on your house or on a post or sign in your yard.

Address signs
1. The bigger, the better. The number should be at least four inches tall if displayed on a house or sign. Get boldface type that is thick and wide.
2. Address signs should be placed about two feet from the driveway in the direction of the house.
3. Pick a color that will contrast with the background. If your house is a dark color, then the address sign should be light so that the number stands out and can be viewed from the street. For
example, a black number is perfect on a white house. A white number will also show clearly on a brick house. A lighted number is even better for easy visibility at night.
4. Use caution with brass or bronze numbers as they are difficult to see on many backgrounds.

Following these guidelines will save valuable time in the event of an emergency. When facing a critical event, you don't want to worry that emergency responders can't find you. Help us help you.

And that's the first Tip of the Week for 2018. Make this your best year ever!
