Tip of the week

Summer showers driving: Wet pavement contributes to nearly 1.2 million traffic crashes each year. When driving in weather, reduce speed according to the amount of water on the road, avoid hard braking or sharp turns, and allow for additional stopping distance between cars. Begin early to stop at intersections, turns and for other traffic.
