A word to the wise – I was recently asked to mention that with the warmer weather, many folks are out walking the roads for their enjoyment and that it would be nice if the drivers slowed down and went around them.
A little courtesy goes a long way and it really wouldn’t make the driver late for wherever it is their going.
While on this subject – many more children are out riding their bikes, it would be a good idea to slow down for them too. Parents, please check that your children is riding with a bike helmet and knows the rules of the road.
And drivers, don’t forget to buckle up – someone out there loves you!
