The Unified Police Department – Riverton Precinct would like to remind motorists to be extremely cautious now that school is back in session throughout the Jordan School District. To help protect that which is most precious to our community, our children, UPD offers the following reminders:
  1. Be mindful of school zones. We have gone all summer with the school zone signs being off. Please be observant while diving through them and obey the speed reduction. A car traveling at 20 MPH can still cause severe injury to a pedestrian, so be extra vigilant.
  2. Stay off your electronic devices. Distracted driving is illegal, but more importantly, individuals using electronic devices while driving drive at the same impairment as an intoxicated driver at a 0.15 blood alcohol content (BAC) level. That is nearly two times the legal limit and soon to be three times the new legal limit (.05 BAC effective January 1, 2019). 
The Riverton community will come together on Monday, Sept. 17, at 6 p.m. at Riverton High School for a special educational event for parents and other adults to become informed about excessive social media use and its effect on children’s happiness, safety and personal well-being. The workshop, titled “Live in Real Life: There is Life Offline,” will feature keynote speakers Collin Kartchner, a TED speaker and social activist, as well as Katey McPherson, children’s advocate and TED speaker. Tips and strategies will be shared to help adults combat the negative effects that excessive screen time has on youth.
