Public Safety Advisory Committee

JULY  2018 SAFETY MESSAGE

This message was created for the residents and property owners of Brookfield but may be relevant for folks in Braintree and Randolph as well.

School is out and children and young people may be in places and in activities that you are not used to seeing them.  Please exercise extra caution in your driving and do not depend upon the usual routine because children may appear whenever and wherever they choose to; on foot, bicycles, riding lawn mowers, playing near or in the road, etc.  They may dart out into the road without warning.  Even if the children are not thinking clearly, no one wants to hit a child!

Our metal reflective E 911 House Number sign project is progressing nicely.  As soon as we determine if there are shipping costs or if the sales tax is included in the price we have been quoted, we will contact you with the final price.  We will need your name, address with correct E 911 house number, whether you want the numbers to be horizontal or vertical and how many signs you want.  Only Brookfield residents or property owners may qualify for this order.  Residents of other towns should contact their select board if they desire these signs.  This is an optional but recommended project of making your home or business more identifiable to emergency vehicles.  We will be making a batch order in July.  We may make another batch later in the year.  If you have questions or want to be sure to be in on this order, please contact the committee at publicsafety@brookfieldvt.org.

Some of you have wondered why the speed limit by the Elementary School no longer has a provision for doing 40 MPH when School is not in session.  That little yellow sign was never backed up by the previous traffic ordinance.  The school is used after school, weekends and Summer vacation by kids and adults for various purposes.  Additionally residents on and visitors to Old Post Road are at risk turning into or pulling out of Old Post Road if traffic is exceeding 30 MPH.  Thank you for asking about the apparent change.
