Traffic Safety Reminders to Kickoff Football Game Day Travel
By KTVL Staff/KTVL.com


MEDFORD, Ore -- Oregon State Police wants you to be safe on the road during football season. The 2014 football season kicks off this weekend for both University of Oregon and Oregon State University. Both OSP, and Oregon Department of Transportation, urge football fans and other game day travelers to start planning now for the upcoming season. 


According to ODOT, an estimated 30,000 additional vehicles converge on Interstate 5 and roads leading to Eugene and Corvallis when home games occur on the same day for UO and OSU, as is the case for their first games this Saturday, August 30. Even though kickoffs are scheduled at different times, traffic heading south or north to Eugene may encounter departure traffic from Corvallis. 


The extra traffic will also join Labor Day holiday weekend travelers, affecting travel time and increasing the potential for highway incidents and crashes. 


OSP, ODOT, and local law enforcement partners offer these simple safety tips and reminders: 

  • Start putting together your traveling game plan now before the season starts 
  • On game day: leave early, be patient and alert so you can react to sudden stops in traffic, quick lane changes by other vehicles, and leave plenty of distance between you and others on the road Keep current on road and travel conditions by visiting TripCheck.com, calling 5-1-1, and listening for radio traffic-related news and updates 
  • Drivers: avoid distractions and leave talking or texting on mobile devices in the hands of your passengers 
  • Buckle up every trip, every time 
  • Have a sober, rested driver behind the wheel of your vehicle before and after the game 

State, county and city police along with ODOT encourage reporting any possible intoxicated or dangerous drivers by calling 9-1-1 or OSP dispatch at 800-24DRUNK (800-243-7865).
