Back-to-School

It’s August and that means the start of another school year.

With increased traffic around schools, drivers need to take precautions when children are present.  Here are a few tips to remembers.

  • When children are present, school zones require you to obey the posted 25mph or slower speed limit, regardless of the day of week or time of day. For example, if it's a Friday night at 10 pm and you are in a school zone when kids are present (maybe a football game or dance just ended), you are still required to adjust your speed to obey the slower school zone speed limit.
  • When a school bus stops with its red lights flashing and/or its stop sign is raised, you must stop from either direction until all kids are safely across the street and the bus lights stop flashing (unless the school bus is stopped on the other side of a multilane or divided highway).
  • Near high school campuses, bear in mind that a higher amount of the motorists are newly licensed teenage drivers who may not have as much driving know-how.
  • Be careful at crosswalks.  Now that school is in session it’s time to double check those intersections.  Just when you think the coast is clear, a student may appear from nowhere and dart across the street.  Make sure to make a full stop at stop signs.  This will give you ample time to make sure the crosswalk is clear before proceeding.

“...kids can be unpredictable.”

We all know that kids can be unpredictable.  Be especially careful in the school zone.  Make sure that driving has your full attention.  Put down that cell phone.  There’s nothing more important than the safety of children.

Summer Crime Trends

Open garage door thefts

The warm days of summer are upon us and with it comes an increase in home burglaries that occur from open garage doors.  Often times these type of thefts can be prevented with a few precautions taken by homeowners.

  • Close your garage door.  It is not uncommon for homeowners to leave their garage door open while they are working outside.  This may be convenient, but it is an open invitation to a burglar. 
  • Don’t leave your garage door opener in your car.  If someone breaks into your car and steals your remote, he/she has an easy way into your home.
  • Check to make sure the garage door is closed before going to bed.
  • Close the garage door all the way down.  You may be tempted to crack the door, especially on a hot evening.  However, a criminal can easily slip under a partially opened door.

Bicycle thefts

The peak months for bicycle thefts occur June through August. You can take a few precautions to reduce the chances of becoming a victim.

  • Keep your garage door closed and side door locked.  21% of bicycle thefts occur from garage burglaries. 
  • Always bring your bike inside at night. It may be a hassle, but many bikes are stolen at night.  15% of bicycle thefts occur from residential backyards.
  • Write down the serial number of your bicycle.  If possible, also take a picture of your bicycle.  Both will be helpful if you have to file a stolen bicycle report.
  • Park your bike with other bikes when you lock it up. Use a good-quality lock, so your bike will not be targeted first.
  • Lock up your bikes even inside your garage, and be sure they are locked to some fixed point like a pipe or rafter.  Once thieves gain access to your garage your bicycle and other valuables can be taken.
