Oregon hosted the 2016 National ADTSEA Conference
American Driver & Traffic Safety Education Association (ADTSEA)
Conference was held in Portland, Oregon July 17-20, 2016 at the Red Lion
Hotel on the River - Jantzen Beach. This national conference is held
annually and the last time it was in Oregon was 2002. The 60th ADTSEA
Conference started on Saturday, July 16 with a Michelin Tire Workshop.
The purpose of the pre-conference workshop was Tire Safety,
supporting the overall focus of Risk Management in teaching teens and
others to be safe and courteous drivers.
Oregon was proud to host the
largest ADTSEA conference ever with over 300 participants from 35 states
attending, including 175 Oregonians.
The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has contracted with WOU
since 2000 to coordinate the training of the Lead Trainers of Trainer
Specialists (TOTS) that teach individuals to be Driver Education (DE)
instructors. The Research Institute at Western Oregon University works
as a collaborative partner with ODOT to provide courses in Driver
Education to certify and re-certify the instructors to ensure they are
current with state and national requirements. Oregon is recognized as being on
the forefront of driver education because of its excellent curriculum
and the outstanding individuals that work as TOTS, several of whom work with
other states to assist them with their Driver Education programs.
