From the Access Control Committee

There are at least three points to make about safety in Deercreek this month.

First - school has been in session for over a month, but we still see unsafe practices such as, vehicles not stopping at stop signs, not watching for school children at bus stops, speeding, and unsafe parking at bus stops by parents while waiting for school busses.

Second - as the weather cools down, more and more people choose to run and walk on the roads rather than the sidewalks. If running or walking, please face vehicle traffic and move single file. If bicycling, please ride with the vehicle traffic as far to the right as possible, and single file.

Third - we celebrate Halloween in October. That means many, many kids are on the streets after dark and a great number of golf carts as well since some kids now prefer to ride those when they go trick or treating. Parents, remember that no one should drive a motorized vehicle, including a golf cart, in Deercreek unless he or she has a valid driver's license.
