Community safety update

Summer is winding down and fall will be here shortly. With schools opening, the increase in pedestrian traffic should be a call for all to be extra-cautious when driving.  A lot of people concentrate on their electronic devices and do not pay attention at intersections.  This causes a lot of headaches for drivers.  Just try to concentrate a little more to avoid accidents. Also, bike traffic will increase and, due to some aggressive bike riders, near misses will be on the rise.
