Thanksgiving has become one of the deadliest times of the year on America’s roads because “Thanksgiving Eve,” the Wednesday before the holiday, has become one of the year’s biggest drinking days. Whether it’s young people home from college or adults who know they have the next day off from work, Thanksgiving Eve has contributed to a rise in drunk driving deaths around the holiday. So please, if you know you are going to be out drinking, arrange to have a non-drinking driver take you home, be it a designated driving friend or relative, or a cab or co-worker. Please stay safe this Holiday Season, and throughout all the seasons, and don't put yourself or others at risk by driving after you have had any alcohol to drink.

FROM THE KANSAS HIGHWAY PATROL; EXTRA CAUTION NEEDED ON KANSAS ROADS DURING HARVEST Harvest season is underway, and the Kansas Highway Patrol would like to remind motorists to use more caution and patience when traveling around farm trucks, tractors, combines, and other implements. “As harvest is underway, each traveler in Kansas needs to be more aware of increased farm implement and truck traffic. In Kansas we have many trucks exiting and entering the roadways at any given time. Traveling around these vehicles requires extra caution,” said Lieutenant Adam Winters, KHP Public Information Officer. Most farm equipment is not designed to travel at highway speeds, and may only travel 15-25 mph. Farm equipment is often wider than other vehicles, and is sometimes wider than the lane of traffic, so extra room should be allowed when traveling near an implement on the road. Extra caution should be practiced on all roads, but especially on the busy rural roads with unmarked intersections. Preliminary numbers indicate that statewide in 2016, there were 110 crashes involving farm equipment. In those 110 crashes, one person was killed, and 29 people were injured. Already this year, preliminary statistics indicate there have been 22 crashes, with seven people injured. It is important to share the road safely, for the sake of the farmers, and for the motoring public. It is important to share the road safely, for the sake of the farmers, and for the motoring public. Tips to keep in mind when sharing Kansas roads with farmers: •Don’t assume the farmer knows you’re there. Most operators of farm equipment regularly check for vehicles behind them, however, most of their time must be spent looking ahead to stay on the road and watch for oncoming traffic. Implements are very loud, hindering the farmer’s ability to hear your vehicle. •Pass with extreme caution. Don’t pass unless you can see clearly ahead of both your vehicle and the farm equipment you are passing. If there are curves or hills blocking your view of oncoming traffic, wait until you can clearly visualize the area you’re passing in. You should not pass in a designated “No Passing Zone,” even if you are stuck behind a farm vehicle. Do not pass if you are within 100 feet of any intersection, railroad grade crossing, bridge, elevated structure, or tunnel. •When a farm vehicle pulls to the right side of the road, it does not mean it is turning right or allowing you to pass. Due to the size of some farm equipment, the farmer must execute wide left turns, so allow it plenty of room and time to turn, and be alert to see if there might be a driveway or field they may be turning into. •Be patient. Don’t assume that a farmer can move aside to let you pass. Shoulders may be soft, wet, or steep, which can cause the farm vehicle to tip, or the shoulder may not support the weight of a heavy farm vehicle. The farmer understands you are being delayed and will move over at the first safe location available. •Think of the slow moving vehicle emblem as a warning to adjust your speed. When you see the slow moving vehicle emblem, you should immediately slow down. While the emblems are visible from a long distance away, it is often difficult to judge the speed at which you are closing in on a vehicle, especially at night. •Pay attention. When you are not focused solely on the road, you increase your chances of a collision, especially if you should come upon a slow moving farm vehicle.

From the Wichita Eagle and the Associated Press Traffic deaths in Kansas averaging more than 1 per day WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas officials say the troubling increase in traffic fatalities across the state is accelerating. AAA spokeswoman Jennifer Haugh told the Wichita Eagle that Kansas is currently averaging more than one traffic fatality a day. Statistics from AAA shows that there have been nearly 175 traffic deaths across this year through the end of May. That's a 13 percent increase over the same time frame a year ago, and a 44 percent increase from 2015. Haugh said cheaper gas prices usually result in people driving more miles but doesn't necessarily mean they drive safer. "The toughest thing is to just focus on driving," she said. "Everyone is trying to do multiple things when they drive, and we're not wired to multitask." She said not wearing seatbelts and having short attention spans can contribute to the fatality increase. "There are studies that show even talking on the phone or talking to someone else in the car is just as distracting" as texting, Haugh said. AAA reported that there were more than 430 traffic deaths in Kansas for all of 2016. Just a few simple changes in driving habits can greatly reduce your chances of becoming involved, or seriously injured, in a traffic crash; 1) Slow Down. Rather than drive 5 mph faster to get somewhere, leave 5 minutes earlier and take your time. 2) No Distracted Driving – Turn off your cell phone, no texting! 3) Always wear your seat belt. Study after study has shown that your chances of surviving any type of accident are greatly enhanced just by buckling up.

The western 2/3s of the 100 block of S Lee Ave will be closed this week for resurfacing. There will be lots of heavy equipment in use during this project, so if you are passing through the area, please slow down and use caution. If you have any business at City Hall you will need to park on Ross as the parking area in front of the Police Department will be closed due to the construction.

STREET CLOSURE – CHRISTMAS COMES TO CLEARWATER On Saturday, Dec. 3, a short segment of Ross St. will be closed from Lee to Prospect from 4:30 PM until approximately 8:00 PM.

ROAD CLOSURE Due to all the rain we've had over the past week, and the prediction for more rain this week, the Fall Fest Carnival has been moved from the City Park to Ross St. Therefore, Ross will be closed from 1st St. to 4th St. from 10:00 AM on Wednesday, 09/14/16 until Sunday morning. Traffic should be normal Wednesday morning, but parents picking up kids from school on Wednesday afternoon, and taking/picking up kids from school all day Thursday will likely be delayed by having to go around Ross St. This in turn will make all of the side streets a little busier, and it will take you a little more time when dropping off or picking up kids from school. So when taking or picking up your kids from school, please leave home 5-10 minutes earlier than you normally would. Expect Delays! We are sorry for the delay, but really looking forward to everyone having fun at the carnival. Thank you for your patience!
