Winter Do's and Don'ts:
 
As snow lovers enjoy skiing and sun worshippers count the days until Spring, here are some Winter Do's and Don'ts to help you stay safe and in compliance with the law:
 
  • DO clear snow from sidewalks to keep them passable.

  • DO keep fire hydrants clear of snow.

  • DO NOT push snow onto your neighbor's property or into the street.

  • DO NOT pile snow higher than three feet or closer than three feet to the curb so as not to obstruct the view of drivers or pedestrians (especially children) exiting driveways.

  • DO NOT park on City streets when snow levels exceed two inches.
  • v
  • DO allow extra drive time when road conditions are poor.

  • DO maintain a minimal safe distance and assured clear distance ahead so you can stop safely on slippery roads.

  • DO enjoy the season!

    No Texting While Driving:
     
    According to a 2006 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, driver inattention is the leading factor in most crashes and near-crashes. The City of Lyndhurst has enacted a No-Texting While Driving Ordinance. Section 432.44 of the Codified Ordinances of Lyndhurst prohibits drivers from composing, sending or reading messages on a portable electronic device. (The ordinance does not apply if the vehicle is parked or the device is being used to summon safety forces for an emergency.)
     
    Help keep our streets safe. Don't text message while driving. Parents please discuss this risky behavior with your young drivers. You may prevent a serious crash or safe yourself a fine of $100.00 for a first offense.
