Note: Traffic Safety Tip of the Week: It’s the Memorial Day weekend and school’s out! Vacation time has arrived for Lee County youth, so motorists driving near residential neighborhoods, recreation areas and parks need to exercise caution as children can be at play throughout the day. Your extra vigilance can prevent a tragedy. Remember “SLOW – Children at Play”.
