Reminder about Traffic Safety

Big image
DANGER! It’s that time of year when the campus parking lots are full, and people are on the move. Traffic accidents increase, many due to driver inattention. Use care and consideration for other motorists and pedestrians by:

  • Looking carefully when backing.
  • Don’t text while driving.
  • Travel at the appropriate posted speeds.
Help to avoid personal injury and property damage that can significantly increase your insurance costs!
