Every 15 Minutes, Part III: May 21 & 22 at Amador and Argonaut High Schools

There will be a large amount of activity at both Amador and Argonaut High Schools on May 21 & 22. Traffic will be heavy at times and drivers should be aware of the possibility of delays. This is happening because the Every 15 Minutes program will be taking place and involves activities at both schools. This is a program sponsored by the California Highway Patrol and the Office of Traffic Safety to promote safe teen drivers and involves multiple local public safety agencies.

On Monday morning, May 21, there will be a simulated drunk driving crash staged at Amador High. There will be many emergency vehicles involved and traffic around the school will be heavy. Busses transporting students from Argonaut will add to the congestion. Motorists are advised to avoid this area if possible. On Tuesday, there will be an assembly at Argonaut as the program continues. Busses transporting students from Amador will be arriving and departing during the mid-day hours.

Most importantly, the public is reminded that this is a staged simulated emergency event and that no real emergency actually exists.  All emergency vehicles and air traffic are responding as participants in this safe driving program.
