   Sign Up Sheet

Share The Road With Motorcycles

Though a motorcycle is a small vehicle, its operator still has all the rights of the road as any other motorist. Allow the motorcycle the full width of a lane at all times.

Always signal when changing lanes or merging with traffic.

If you see a motorcycle with a signal on, be careful: motorcycle signals are often non-canceling and could have been forgotten. Always ensure that the motorcycle is turning before proceeding.

Check all mirrors and blind spots for motorcycles before changing lanes or merging with traffic, especially at intersections.

Always allow more follow distance – three to four seconds – when behind a motorcycle. This gives them more time to maneuver or stop in an emergency.

• Never drive distracted or impaired.


Motorcyclists can increase their safety by following these steps:

  Wear a DOT-compliant helmet and other protective gear.

  Obey all traffic laws and be properly licensed.

   Use hand and turn signals at every lane change or turn.

  Wear brightly colored clothes and reflective tape to increase visibility.

  Ride in the middle of the lane where you will be more visible to drivers.

  Never ride distracted or impaired.

Trunk Entrapment

Children are naturally curious and love to explore their surroundings. So, if you leave your kids unattended, in or near a vehicle, it won't be long before they are playing in it. Hide and seek can turn deadly if they get trapped in the trunk, where temperatures can rise very quickly - resulting in heatstroke or asphyxiation.

Prevention Tips

•Teach children that vehicle trunks are for cargo, not for playing.

•Always supervise your children carefully when in and around vehicles.

•Check the trunk right away if your child is missing.

•Lock your car doors and trunk and be sure keys and remote entry devices are out of sight and reach of your kids.

•Keep the rear fold-down seats closed/locked to keep your children from climbing into the trunk from inside your car.

Retrofit Your Car

As of September 1, 2001, auto manufacturers were required to equip all new vehicle trunks with a 'glow in the dark' trunk release inside the trunk compartment. Show your kids how to use the release in case of an emergency. If your car is older and does not have the 'glow in the dark' trunk release, ask your automobile dealership about getting your vehicle retrofitted with a trunk release mechanism.

What You Need To Know, Now.

•Younger children are more sensitive to heat than older children and adults, and are at greater risk for heatstroke.

•High temperature, humidity and poor ventilation create an extremely dangerous environment in a vehicle trunk.

•Check the trunk right away if your child is missing.

•Even in cooler temperatures, your vehicle can heat up to dangerous temperatures very quickly. An outside temperature in the mid 60s can cause a vehicle’s inside temperature to rise above 110 degrees Fahrenheit. The inside temperature of your car can rise almost 20 degrees Fahrenheit within the first 10 minutes.

  • Never drive around lowered gates - it's illegal and deadly.
  • Never race a train to the crossing - even if you tie, you lose.
  • Do not get trapped on the tracks. Only proceed through a highway-rail grade crossing if you are sure you can completely clear the crossing without stopping. Remember, the train is three feet wider than the tracks on both sides.
  • If your vehicle ever stalls on a track while a train is coming, get out immediately and move quickly away from the tracks in the direction from which the train is coming.
  • At a multiple track crossing waiting for a train to pass, watch out for a second train on the other tracks, approaching in either direction.
  • Always expect a train! Freight trains do not follow set schedules.
  • Be aware that trains cannot stop quickly. A freight train moving 55 miles per hour can take a mile or more to stop. That's 18 football fields!
  • Do not be fooled - the train you see is closer and faster moving than you think.
  • When you need to cross train tracks, go to a designated crossing, look both ways, and cross the tracks quickly, without stopping.
  • Cross tracks only at designated pedestrian or roadway crossings.
  • Never walk down a train track; it's illegal and it's dangerous.
  • Remember: Rails and recreation do not mix!


Would-Be Robber Pepper Sprayed Himself

West Virginia man is in jail after authorities say he foiled his own robbery by accidentally pepper-spraying himself.

The Register-Herald  reports 43-year-old Michael Kevin Meadows of Shady Spring was arrested Wednesday for attempted robbery.

Authorities say a man went into a pharmacy in Beaver on Tuesday wearing full camouflage and a paintball mask.

The would-be robber started spraying pepper spray in an effort to take down employees, then walked into the cloud of pepper spray in front of him. Police say security footage showed he was affected by his own pepper spray.

He staggered out of the business and got into a vehicle. Police investigating the incident discovered the name of the man who was driving the vehicle. The driver identified Meadows as the attempted robbery suspect.
