Cub Pride Article - March 31, 2017 by Officer Jay Jastal
With all the ground hogs we see every day at South Park, there had to be one in Pennsylvania that was afraid of his shadow extending our winter. I believe it is finally safe to say that spring has arrived in the Ozarks with summer soon to follow. We can now resume the outdoor activities we stopped during the colder months. It is also time to remember some tips to help keep our community and our families safe.
Drivers need to remember to be extra vigilant. Paying attention to the posted signs and the road as well as not using cell phones, eating, or being distracted while driving greatly reduces the chance of an accident. Drivers should also watch for motorcyclists during the summer months.
Children should be reminded to watch for traffic and cross streets only at intersections or crosswalks. When riding bicycles, always ride with the flow of traffic and obey all stop signs, traffic lights and traffic control devices. Remember to use proper hand and arm signals when turning or stopping and yield to other vehicles in the roadway. Wearing brightly-colored clothing and having reflective devices on bicycles will help prevent accidents.
Take a little time to think about safety and we can all have a safe, fun spring and summer!
