As we welcome spring, we remember that spring is a great time in our community – spring sports are underway and graduation draws near for our students. Many of us celebrate these good times in our community.
We also want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our county roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:
* Wear your seat belts.
* Obey speed limits and other traffic laws.
* Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
* Don't text or use electronics while driving.
* Make sure children are in the correct car seat.
Additionally all motorists need to be on the look-out not only for children but other pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcycles. One accident can change multiple lives and families forever.

Thank you for keeping our roads and our citizens’ safe, and we look forward to the great times that spring will bring!
