Public Safety Advisory Committee
SEPTEMBER 2020 PUBLIC SAFETY TIPS:
These tips are intended for residents, visitors and property owners of Brookfield, VT but may apply to neighboring towns as well.
- School is starting this week as it does every early September requiring all drivers to be particularly careful. Not only do we have the usual return of school buses making frequent stops and the possibility of children darting into the road and teenage drivers rushing to school but we also have the pandemic.
- The pandemic has caused schools to adopt a variety of schedules that make many of the weekdays different from each other. This causes more and different traffic on some days than others. The additional pressure of the changing schedule may cause both parents and children to occasionally make sudden changes of direction, worried about being late or which door to let off which child at.
- We all need to plan things accordingly. Certainly, driving more defensively and avoiding distractions will be helpful. Perhaps we should leave a little earlier or later than usual on our trips and above all, be patient and understanding of others trying to cope in a difficult situation.
