Be Safe: Memorial Day Travel

Memorial Day weekend is on the horizon and many of us have made plans to travel in order to spend the holiday with loved ones. While it is a day to look forward to, individuals should be aware of the hazardous road conditions. The National Safety Council estimates 383 traffic deaths and another 46,300 medically consulted injuries may occur over the 2015 Memorial Day weekend. The Council believes in total May 2015 will bring about 3,073 fatalities from motor vehicle collisions.

Bike Safely!

With spring in the rearview and summer quickly approaching, National Bike Month is now among us with an encouraging message of a safer experience on the roads for cyclists. Last year, the Bicycle Safety Law (HB 4304) passed in West Virginia which requires that motorists allow bicyclists at least 3 feet of passing space on the street. In light of this, West Virginia Connecting Communities commenced the "Give em' 3 Feet" campaign this past Monday which assists in informing motorists how to advance and pass bicyclists. The campaign hopes to have an optimistic impact on lives throughout our nation.
