April Showers bring May Flowers AND unfortunately HYDROPLANING. When you hydroplane, so much water has built up in your tires that they lose contact with the road. Therefore avoid driving through puddles and standing water. But if you can’t, here are some tips to help overcome this: -Do not brake or accelerate suddenly. -Stay calm and wait for the skid to stop. -Ease your foot off the gas. -Stay calm -Steer in the direction you want the car to go. -Brake carefully. -Did we mention stay calm? Remember, #slowdown in rainy conditions. #rainraingoaway #AprilShowers

(pictured L. to R. Officer Runge, Officer Crosby, Police Chief Maurer and Officer Coderoni)".

TODAY IN HISTORY..... 45 years ago the 1st mobile phone call is made, April 3, 1973 by Marty Cooper, right here at Bell Labs in New Jersey!! With that being said... the 2018 Distracted Driving Crackdown is in effect. Beginning April 1, and running through April 21, the high visibility law enforcement initiative will target motorists who engage in dangerous distracted driving behaviors such as talking on hand-held cell phones and sending text messages while driving. Did you know that driver inattention was in fact listed as a contributing factor in crashes at a rate nine times higher than that of the next highest contributing factor (speed)? Not a fun fact at all. Let's all get where we're going safely!
