A message from WDTSEA President Bob Movrich.

Fall 2017

Hello all, well the fall regional workshops at Menomonie, Wausau, Oshkosh, Spring Green and Oconomowoc are behind us and they were as usual, a success.  The speakers were very good and a lot of information was presented to our members in attendance.  Speaking of attendance, our numbers were actually pretty decent.  Approximately 75 members attended the five workshops which is very consistent with the past three years.  Here are some takeaways from the presentations:

                                                                                                                                                                                                     - "90 people die each day in the US as a result of vehicle crashes!"

- "The average text takes 5 seconds, in which time your vehicle travels the length of a football field."

- " 78% of people who die as a result of a motorcycle crash were not wearing a helmet!"

- "39% of the people who die as a result of a motorcycle crash have alcohol in their system!"

- " Semi- trailers or any other vehicle longer than 40' have the right of way in a roundabout."

- "More police officers are killed as a result of people not obeying the "Move Over" law, than are shot and killed each year!"

- " No Passing farm equipment in a No Passing zone!"

- "Don't swerve for a deer!"

- "Don't use whiteout on your students 3001 application!"

- "There has been an increase in drugged driving arrests."

- "A motorcycle is allowed to go through a red light if after stopping, waiting for 45 seconds and no traffic is present."

     A big thank you to the D.M.V., B.O.T.S., ABATE and the Wisconsin State Patrol for your presentations.  Also thanks to all who took time out of their busy schedule to come to the workshops.  I hope you received some valuable information from them.  Just a few reminders, get your nominations in for "Teacher of the Year", "Hall of Fame" and "Distinguished Service Award" by January 15th, 2018.  State Conference is April 6th & 7th, 2018 at the Chula Vista in the Dells.  More information will be available after January 1, 2018.  Also consider volunteering your time and serving on the WDTSEA board of directors.  We need a new Business Manager, Delegate at Large and a President Elect.  Contact me at movrob1@hotmail.com or any other board member if interested.  Thanks again and keep it safe, Bob
