I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day
Weekend! A new school year is officially upon us and though it may look
different than past school years, we still must be extra cautious when driving
around our communities!
It’s always important – and especially now that
children are back in school – that everyone obeys speed limits, stops for
pedestrians and avoids distractions when driving. It’s also important that
pedestrians and children walking to school use crosswalks or cross at
intersections and wait for the walk signal before stepping into the road.
