In the coming days, the City of Alvin and the Alvin Police Department will begin placing our “Drive Wise” signs on various city roadways. These colorful signs are intended to be friendly reminders about traffic safety. The signs focus on speeding, distracted driving, and other major contributors to the number of traffic accidents we witness on Alvin roadways each year. The Drive Wise program originated in Surprise, Arizona and we hope to have the same success and community acceptance of the program here!

Happy Halloween!
