The Georgia Department of Law, in conjunction with the Statewide Opioid Task Force, has created an excellent website where Georgians can get some great information on preventing opioid abuse in Georgia. The site contains information for prescription drug take back locations, and other resources for healthcare professionals, students, parents, businesses, educators, coaches, caregivers, and seniors. As Attorney General Carr has said, "We want Georgians to know that if they are battling this crisis in their own homes, they are not alone. We will continue working on this issue until there are no more tears, no more funerals and no more heartaches as a result of this modern-day plague." (RP) https://doseofrealityga.org/

**Update** Roadway is opened. 3 left lanes blocked on I-285 West just past Ashford Dunwoody Road. Minor injuries but everyone is ok. Will update when the roadway is back open. (Km)

For those that may have questions as to when you SHOULD or SHOULD NOT stop for school buses displaying the stop arm, here is some knowledgeable information about the law in Georgia: • Two-lane roadway: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop. • Two-lane roadway with a center turning lane: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop. • Four-lane roadway without a median separation: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop. •Roadway of four lanes or more with a center turning lane: When school bus stops for passengers, ALL traffic from both directions must stop. •Divided highway of four lanes or more with a median separation: When school bus stops for passengers, only traffic following the bus must stop. Decreasing your speed will reduce serious hazards and promote safety awareness. It is important to follow these laws for the safety of bus passengers, and all drivers on the road as well. Failure to comply can result in fines up to a $1000, up to 6 points on a driving record, and other penalties. Promote safety awareness on the road by being vigilant and aware of these laws. (AS)

To all of those who answer the phone when people’s emergencies are new and raw and begin to deal with them armed only with a calm voice, a set of instructions and reassurance that help is on the way… those who attempt to calm the hysteria and glean valuable information to pass along to first responders… those who monitor every incident, piece of apparatus and personnel in the system simultaneously. To those special people at ChattComm 911 who are behind the scenes... the unsung heroes of public safety, THANK YOU! Happy National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week! We appreciate all you do! (AS)

**Update** Roadway is opened. ‪3 lanes blocked currently on I 285. Working to open the roadway up. Minor injuries but everyone is okay. Will update when roadway is open. (MC)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. More than 3.5 million Americans currently live with ASD, and 1 in 68 children are born with a variation of it, so it’s likely you know, whether or not you’re aware of it, someone on the autism spectrum. With a growing incidence in the country, The Autism Society was founded in 1965 and in the early 1970s began a nationwide campaign to raise awareness. The first National Autism Awareness Month occurred in April of 1970. Nearly 50 years later, April is still celebrated as a time to raise awareness around the differences of those on the spectrum, supporting people and educating the public on autism. (AS)
