Spring Break is next week, a time that I am sure many of you anticipate. I live in a household with three ISD employees, so I know they are pretty excited. With that, please keep in mind a few safety tips to make sure your Spring Break goes smoothly. Do not drink and drive, this is reckless behavior and automatically puts you and others in danger—make alternative travel plans if you intend to consume alcohol. Slow down, especially in bad weather, construction areas, unfamiliar areas, etc., as there will be more people and children present. Drive defensively, not aggressively. Don’t drive fatigued. Move over for emergency vehicles and other drives parked on the side of roadways. Be a courteous driver, be safe, and have a great Spring Break. (more...)
