  • Tip of the Week: Drive Safely 

The winter holidays have passed and hopefully we can all take some time to catch our breath. But we need to remember that school is still out for winter vacation, and there will be increased pedestrian traffic. As always, we should obey all posted speed limits, stop signs, and yielding the right of way to pedestrians crossing the street. Pedestrians also need to be responsible, and cross the street safely, using marked crosswalks whenever available.
