It has been a challenging few weeks for the Danville community, with two serious auto accidents resulting in loss of life. Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the two individuals who passed away and our thoughts continue to be on how we can work with the community to help prevent further tragedies like these from occurring.
As Police Chief, I frequently receive input from residents. As of late the overwhelming feedback from our residents is that we still have too many people on the road who are taking unnecessary risks. Those risks include talking on cellphones while driving, not yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks, running red lights and other similar traffic safety problems. I encourage everyone to consider the risks of distracted and/or impatient driving and the grave consequences that can result.
I also would like to ask our residents to talk to their driving-age children about safety on the roadway and make sure they are being safe while behind the wheel.
For our part, we are happy to talk to residents about driving safety and ways to prevent accidents from happening. And our officers will be out on the streets, enforcing the traffic laws with the goal of improving traffic safety in our wonderful Town.
Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions or concerns.
