Town Safety Warnings

Main Street

The Town continues to receive numerous complaints regarding speeding cars, particularly in neighborhoods around our schools. The problem is particularly pronounced around school start and stop times, exactly when speeding is especially problematic as it is when our children are making their way to and from school on bikes and on foot.

We continue to hear from residents about speeding issues, as well as poor driving habits, such as not stopping for pedestrians in crosswalks, rolling through stop signs and general inattention. Residents report that these poor driving habits are widespread and very scary for pedestrians, bicyclists and other drivers.

We all need to do our part to help solve this problem in our community. Here are a few tips that may help:

  • Leave several minutes early for your destination so that you don’t feel the need to rush.
  • Stop completely at stop signs; don’t assume that someone isn’t going to be coming from another direction.
  • When driving through residential neighborhoods, respect the fact that speeding through these areas endangers pedestrians, children and pets.
  • Respect the neighborhoods around schools; drive carefully and park legally.
  • Don’t believe that this is somebody else’s problem – we all need to be part of the solution.

Please help me pass this important message along to others in our community.
