1st – “Lightning Awareness Week” ends today, however, we should all always be aware of safety when it comes to lightning. Please see the attached information from the Wayne Township Trustee and Fire Chief that pertains to whenever we have lightning.
2nd – While we are talking about storms – please be extra careful when we have rains and potential flooding like we did yesterday. Remember – do not drive through water on streets, roads, and parking lots. You do not know how deep it is. This cannot only flood out a car, but also flowing water can take you off the road and into a ditch or stream.
3rd – Please keep drains along the curbs free of all debris. During a storm leaves can wash over a grate very quickly and clog it up, causing a street to flood. Please check any grates by your house or in your neighborhood today and make sure they are clear of leaves, twigs, trash, etc. before we have our next rain fall or storm.
4th – Below are the Traffic Restrictions for our district from DPW (Department of Public Works). While the three are all in Wayne Township, two may affect those of us who live in Pike Township when we are going somewhere, so I am making sure everyone is aware of them. There is also some information from INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) including “Safe Driving Tips in Work Zones”
5th – Just a reminder that the Northwest District IMPD Bike Safety Rally is this coming Wednesday, June 28th, from 6:30 – 8:30 at The Blended Church, 2215 Country Club Road. This is open to all boys and girls from ages 5 to 15. See attached flyer for more information. Hope to see many of you there with your children or grandchildren.
Have a great week end and enjoy the sunshine!

Tips for driving safely in work zones
Stay alert and minimize distractions: Don’t text, talk or adjust controls.
Expect the unexpected: Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed, and workers may be nearby.
Slow down: Speeding is the major cause of work zone crashes.
Don’t tailgate: The most common work zone crash is the rear-end collision.
Pay attention to signs: Warning signs help keep you and other drivers safe.
Schedule enough time to drive safely: Expect delays and leave early.
