We remind citizens that while they are out and about enjoying the beautiful spring weather to remember that other people are, too. As we all know the farmers are hitting the fields, motorcycles are hitting the road and the children are enjoying outside activities.
Please remember that not only do we want to keep you safe but we also want to consider all the other people around us and keep them safe. When you jump in your car, make sure you buckle up and watch your speed. There is a lot of slow moving equipment moving down the road. There are also lots of young children running around. We want them all to be safe. The faster you go the longer it takes for you to stop. We want everyone to enjoy the springtime and all the activities that go with it; but it takes effort on everybody's part.
Enjoy spring and be safe!
