Wow, a little bad weather and the traffic accidents
and near misses are up significantly. From late Wednesday through Thursday
afternoon the MVPD responded to 7 accidents in the villages, two of them having
injured drivers and/or occupants. Please remember that when the weather
changes, especially with our extremely cold mornings and evenings along with a
steady mist of rain the streets get very slippery. Drivers need to be aware of
localized black ice on bridges and accumulated leaves and pine needles on the
roads. Most roadways are covered with a
very thin layer of oil that has leaked from passing vehicles. Often a heavy
rain fall will wash the oil away, but a fine misting of rain will not. The
light rain along with the oil creates extremely slick road conditions. This is
when it is most important to slow down especially in the villages where our
narrow streets, ditches and soft shoulders leave drivers with little time to
react to the changing road conditions. Remember to Slow down while traveling on
all of our village streets as this will help to avoid being involved in an
Over the past week we have been conducting a traffic
survey on Blalock, monitoring speeds around the clock. The results show that a
majority of the time, most drivers are obeying the posted speed limits, but
unfortunately not all of the time. Specifically, we see speeds increasing after
11pm as drivers are cutting through the villages late in the evening. I have directed our officers to add Blalock
between Taylorcrest and Memorial to our list of special traffic enforcement
zones. You can expect heavy enforcement
in this area until we get the speeds back down. Please be careful of your
speeds when traveling along Blalock.
Earlier today we had a D.A.R.E. graduation at Hunters
Creek Elementary School. The 5th grade graduates had ceremonies at 9
am and soon after were treated to a Hot Dog lunch compliments of the PTA and
the MVPD. Officer Miller did a super job of educating your children about the
dangers of drugs, peer pressure and how to make good decisions. Everyone had a
good time and enjoyed today’s event.
Over the past 2 weeks I have had the opportunity to
meet with the Inman Oaks Neighborhood Association and the Windermere
Neighborhood Association. Thanks to both groups for the invite and for the
dialogue about how best to protect you, your homes and your neighborhood.
Officer Frank Lerma and/or I are always available to meet with groups and
discuss what is going on, answer questions or just visit. Please contact
Officer Lerma at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Have a nice weekend. Chief Ray Schultz email@example.com
