We were happy to see that no one travelling Oregon's highways perished over Christmas, but a spate of recent reports shows that holiday travel remains a danger. A single car fatal collision was recently reported on Highway 6 on the way to Tillamook. Another head on collision took a life in the past few days on Highway 30, and police continue investigation of a fatal collision in Bend.
News outlets also reported the filing of several suits against the bus touring company and the State of Oregon for the tour bus accident that took several lives in Pendleton last year.
New Year's Eve is here, and hopefully, we can expect another report that everyone made it home safe and sound. Here are some options:
For folks in Portland, check out Tri Met.
Unfortunately, I am not able to find anything online advertising ride service for New Year's Eve transportation for those who may have enjoyed themselves a bit too much in Astoria, but a cab ride is a small and safe investment, and if you are a Triple A member, you can call for assistance.
