On Monday, November 25, 2013, the leaders from California Highway Patrol (CHP), Washington State Patrol (WSP), and Oregon State Police (OSP) announced they are joining forces for the “I-5 Challenge” encouraging drivers to get through the Thanksgiving Holiday extended weekend with zero fatalities on Interstate 5.
Starting Wednesday evening, November 27, state law enforcement officers from San Diego, California, through Oregon, and up to Bellingham, Washington, will be targeting education and enforcement efforts on the road. Using a mix of education outreach and enforcement to get voluntary compliance of traffic laws, the message will kick off one of the busiest travel times of the year on our nation’s highways during the Thanksgiving Holiday (6 p.m., Wednesday, November 27, through 11:59 p.m., Sunday, December 1).
CHP, WSP and OSP officers will focus on traffic collision-causing violations that are known to be factors that often lead to tragedies and end in people not arriving safely to their destinations. Speed, aggressive and distracted driving often top the list, along with driving while impaired and failing to use safety belts and child safety seats.

ABERDEEN, Wash. - A motorcycle rider that died Sunday evening on second street has been identified as 43 year old Robert James Jenkins of Aberdeen.
Police Captain John Green tells us a Ford Explorer was turning into a driveway when the Harley Davidson apparently tried to pass him on the right and the two collided. The rider was taken to Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the Explorer was not injured, speed and alcohol appear to be a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
Green said they were called to the scene at about 6:53 Sunday night. The initial investigation indicates a 54 year old Aberdeen man was driving his white 1994 Ford Explorer westbound on W. 2nd St. At the same time, a 43 year old Aberdeen man was riding his black 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle also westbound on W. 2nd St.
As the vehicle began slowing to make a right turn into the driveway of his residence, the motorcyclist accelerated and began making a pass on the right. The vehicle driver was unaware of the passing motorcycle, and as he began the turn the two collided.
