October 20th is National Move Over Day: To help safeguard law enforcement officers, emergency responders, road maintenance workers, and others who work on the side of highways, Wisconsin has a "Move Over Law." The law requires drivers to shift lanes or slow down in order to provide a "safety zone" for a squad car, ambulance, fire truck, tow truck, utility vehicle, or highway maintenance vehicle that is stopped on the side of a road with its warning lights flashing. Please see the DOT's site for more info: https://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/safety/education/move-over/default.aspx

We have seen an increase in bike thefts on campus and near campus locations. We would like to remind everybody of the following safety tips to safeguard against bicycle thefts: •Use a U-Lock instead of a cable lock. U-Locks are solid steel and are very hard to cut. Cable locks can be cut easily. •Always secure your bike to a bike rack or solid object. Secure both wheels and frame. •Remember that locks are only a deterrent. •Report all suspicious persons loitering around bike racks to Police. •If it can be removed, it can be stolen! Quick release tires and adjustable bicycle seats are good examples of parts that are stolen easily. •Engrave identifying markings on anything removable to aid in recovery, but better to secure your bicycle parts so that they cannot be removed easily. •Keep a record of your bike’s serial number. If your bicycle is stolen report the incident to the police immediately. UWM Police Department 414-229-4627 UWM.EDU/POLICE

The annual “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign continues through Labor Day. As part of the nationwide effort to save lives and prevent injuries, law enforcement agencies from around Wisconsin will patrol in greater numbers, and for longer hours, to arrest impaired drivers and get them off the road. What can you do? - If you suspect an impaired driver, contact 911. - Never allow someone to get behind the wheel impaired. -Consider downloading the free "Drive Sober" mobile app. (Along with a designated driver selector, it includes a find-a-ride feature that uses a smart phone’s GPS system to locate alternative transportation.) #DriveSober
