Initiatives to Help Texas Drivers with Communication Challenges

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), along with the Texas Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities and Aspergers101, this week announced initiatives designed to assist Texans who have communication impairments. In an effort to facilitate effective communication, DPS first reminded Texans of the communication impediment option that drivers may select to be reflected on their driver licenses/ID cards.  DPS also announced that it has recently coordinated with Aspergers101 to allow them to provide training and education to DPS officers about autism spectrum disorders, other disabilities and potential communications challenges associated with those disorders. In addition, the department announced that it is working with Aspergers101 to develop a Driving With Autism camp that will help increase driver confidence and practical skills.

By Kenny Mitchell

Publisher

High school students from all over Bowie County got a very realistic, up-close view of the tragic effects of drinking and driving this morning at the Four States Fair Grounds Arena as a collaborative effort presented Shattered Dreams.

Shattered Dreams gave those students a mock accident scene complete with emergency responders, ambulances, local law enforcement and even a hearse as it gave an authentic representation of what can happens when teens get behind the wheel of a car after they have been drinking.

Area students participated in the scene, acting out the carnage and aftermath of a three car collision, complete with an extrication, injuries and the death of a high school student.

Warning about possible child abductor

Multiple law enforcement agencies, school districts and individuals are warning that there is a suspected child abductor making his way around Northeast Texas, attempting to lure small children into his vehicle.

The alleged suspect is a Black male with dreadlocks, driving a silver/gray sedan with stickers on the passenger side with tinted windows.

This past Thursday a young boy was attempted to be lured into the man’s vehicle just off of Hwy. 37 south of Clarksville. In this incident, the boy’s grandmother heard three honks and then stepped outside to see the man trying to lure the young boy into his vehicle.

There have been other reports of similar incidents in Avery, Annona, Bogata and Lone Star. Law enforcement officials urge everyone to take extra precautions and talk to your children about talking to strangers until this person is located and questioned.
