Rocky River Police Department News

Trick or Treat starts at 6:00 PM and goes until 8:00 PM tonight! Only go to houses that have porch lights on and are obviously participating in the event. Younger children that go trick-or-treating should be with an adult. Older children that have permission from parents to trick-or-treat should stay in the area/neighborhood they have agreed upon with parents. Wear reflective clothing and/or carry flashlights, glow sticks, etc., so motorists and others can see you clearly. If wearing a mask, remove it when crossing streets so it doesn't obstruct your vision. Stay on sidewalks and cross the street at crosswalks or intersections. Be polite and courteous to other trick-or-treators, especially younger children. Report suspicious behavior to your parents and, if appropriate, to police, as soon as possible. Have a safe and happy holiday!

October 15-21, 2017 is National Teen Driver Safety Week! This week and every week, parents should have conversations with their teens about the important rules they need to follow to stay safe behind the wheel of a passenger car, truck, or SUV. These rules address the greatest dangers for teen drivers: alcohol, inconsistent or no seat belt use, distracted and drowsy driving, speeding, and number of passengers. Too many teens are dying on our roads Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens (15 to 18 years old) in the United States - ahead of all other types of injury, disease, or violence. There were 1,972 teen drivers of passenger vehicles involved in fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2015, and an estimated 99,000 teen passenger vehicle drivers were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes. https://www.teendriversource.org/stats/support_teens

Height is the best marker of when a child is ready for a seat belt alone. Your child should be able to sit with his or her back against the vehicle cushion and knees bent over the edge of the vehicle seat. Older children, teens, and adults should always use lap and shoulder belts for best protection. Stay safe, always wear your seat belt!

A child 4 years or older, whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for his or her car seat, should use a belt positioning booster seat with a lap and shoulder seat belt. The child should remain in a booster seat until the seat belt fits properly usually when a child has reached 4' 9" in height and is between 8 and 12 years old.

A child 2 years or older, who has outgrown his or her rear-facing car seat, should use a forward-facing car seat with a harness for as long as possible, up to the highest weight or height limit allowed by the manufacturer. A forward facing seat has a harness and tether to limit forward momentum in a crash. The Rocky River Police Department has Child Passenger Safety Technicians that are available to assist in the proper installation of car seats. Please call 440-331-1234 to schedule an appointment.

Infants and toddlers under age 2 should always ride in a rear-facing car seat. Riding rear facing provides more protection for a child's head, neck, and spine. Children under 2 are 75% less likely to die or be severely injured in a crash when rear facing. The Rocky River Police Department has Child Passenger Safety Technicians that are available to assist in the proper installation of car seats. Please call 440-331-1234 to schedule an appointment.

September 17-23 is Child Passenger Safety Week. Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13.
