Walkers / Joggers / Bicyclists
1. Make use of sidewalks/pathways (Yes, pedestrians have the right of way, but that only works if the driver “sees” you)
2. Invest in reflective clothing
3. Wear light/bright colors, especially in the evening hours
4. Although bicycles have reflectors, a blinker makes you more visible; also, from sunset to sunrise, the law requires you to have a headlight and a red blinking rear light, and a helmet is also required
5. When driving through the village, please obey speed limits; the Sheriff’s Department is authorized to monitor and enforce traffic laws in the Village
6. Three or four way stop: The first car to the intersection, after stopping, is the first car to proceed through the intersection
As we all advance in our age, our reflexes are not as swift and our eyesight is not as sharp. We may be fighting illness, effects of medication we are taking, or talking on our cell phones.
Life is busy. Think how it would forever change your/their life if you hit someone. Please take a moment to decide to make this, your neighborhood, a safe one. Each of us can make a difference!
And please remember: A LITTLE COURTESY GOES A LONG WAY!
