Create Real Impact: Distracted Driving Kills

What is Create Real Impact? It is a contest designed to get drivers informed about the dangers of distracted driving , and it was created by Impact Teen Drivers.

Impact Teen Drivers was formed in response to a high number of car accidents involving teenagers, which California Highway Patrol officers tended to. The purpose of this organization is to educate teenagers, their parents, and community members about the importance of responsible driving, hoping to reduce the amount of  injuries and deaths caused by distracted driving.

Distracted driving kills, and it is the leading cause of death in teens. But something like this shouldn't be. Deaths caused by distracted driving could have been prevented, and Impact Teen Drivers is aware of this and wants all of us to be aware as well.

Bay Bridge Retrofit Update

Bay Bridge Retrofit Update

In mid-November another milestone is expected to be reached with the suspension portion and full completion expected in 2013.

It is work in several sections that will result in side by side lanes for part of the Bay Bridge into the city and from SF back to Oakland.  There will still be a double deck but it's been reinforced with millions of pounds of steel.

Video simulations from Caltrans are pretty cool.
