As we enter the summer season, please take extra caution to watch for children playing near our county roads. Slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. Also, remember that children learn by watching us.
If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:
- Wear your seat belts.
- Obey speed limits.
- Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
- Don't text while driving.
- Make sure children are in the right car seat.

Thank you for keeping our roads safe.
