WINTER IS COMING! It is time to prepare for the colder winter months.

Insulate pipes. Insulate all exposed pipes that are susceptible to freezing. When the temperature drops below freezing keep a stream of water running to prevent pipes from freezing. Drain all garden hoses and store them away. Shut off valves and insulate the faucet.

Caulk or install weather stripping. Installing weather stripping around windows, doors and air conditioners prevents cold air from entering your home and heat from escaping.

Check furnaces, heaters and chimneys. They should be serviced once a year to keep them running efficiently.

Protect your plants. Bring plants and flowering trees inside before the first cold snap. Bring plants in before temperature drops below 45 degrees F. The average first frost in the North Texas area is November 15th.

Stock up. Don’t wait for the next big winter storm. It’s good to stock up ahead of time on water and food that doesn’t require cooking or prep, such as dried fruit, granola bars, crackers, etc., extra pet food, flashlights and extra batteries. It’s also a good idea to have an emergency car kit with, extra blankets, radio, ice scrapers, charger, jumper cables, and a first aid kit.

It’s Almost The End Of Summer

The end of summer is almost here and that means millions of Texas children will soon return to school. TxDOT reminds drivers to always stop for flashing red lights on a school bus. Be safe, drive smart.

Last year, 663 vehicle crashes occurred in school zones in Texas, resulting in zero deaths and 21 serious injuries. August and September of 2014 alone saw 107 crashes in school zones. The most common factors contributing to these crashes were driver inattention, failure to control speed and failure to yield the right of way at stop signs.

Following these simple tips can help Texas children reach school safely and help drivers avoid costly fines and tickets.

Tips for Driving in School Zones

  • Put away your cell phone. Cell phone use is banned in active school zones, and violators face fines of up to $200 in school zones where signs are posted.
  • Always obey school zone speed limit signs. Remember, traffic fines usually double in school zones.
  • Drop off and pick up your children in your school’s designated areas, not the middle of the street.
  • Keep an eye on children gathered at bus stops.
  • Be alert for children who might dart across the street or between vehicles on their way to school.

Tips for Children Walking or Biking to School

  • Always cross at intersections and designated crosswalks. Look left, right and then left again before proceeding.
  • Look for traffic when stepping off a bus or from behind parked cars.
  • Make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street.
  • Always obey crossing guards.
  • Always wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.

Left Lane

We’ve heard many of you didn’t know: The left lane on a divided highway is a PASSING lane. After you pass someone, move into the right lane so you don’t hold up traffic. Impeding the flow of traffic by continuing to drive in the left lane is punishable by a fine of up to $200.

A passing lane is commonly referred to as a “fast lane” because it is often used for extended periods of time for through traffic or fast traffic. However, a passing lane should be used only for passing, thus allowing, even on a road with only two lanes in each direction, motorists to travel at their own pace.

Traffic Jam Tips

Below are some useful tips for the next time you are in traffic.

Image result for traffic

Make smart driving decisions:

  • Avoid aggressive driving and weaving from lane to lane.
  • Keep a safe distance at least three seconds between you and the vehicle ahead of you. This will help you avoid frequent braking and rear-end collisions.
  • Watch the traffic ahead closely. When cars in front brake, take your foot off the accelerator to slow down gradually before you brake. Be cautious not to brake abruptly.
  • Stay focused. Keep your mind on driving by avoiding distractions such as eating or using your cell phone.

Follow driving fundamentals

  • Use your blinkers when changing lanes or merging. Most state laws require activating blinkers at least 100 feet before merging or turning, but some states require at least 200 feet.
  • Use your mirrors to monitor the areas around your car. Perform head checks to check your blind spots before changing lanes or merging.
  • Use the length of the acceleration lane to merge safely into traffic.
  • Be responsible with technology, and plan ahead. Before you start your trip, check traffic apps on your phone or listen to radio reports to avoid congested areas. If you’re worried about encountering heavy traffic during your commute, take time before you leave to map out an alternate route on your GPS.

Check The Back Seat

As the heat rises so does hot-car death rates. New technology may be able to help cut these down.

Drivers get reminders to wear a seat-belt, turn off the headlights and close the gas-tank door. Now, they’re also getting alerts to check the back seat for young passengers.

Nissan’s rear-door alert system will become standard on all four-door trucks, cars and SUVs with power locks by its 2022 model year. The system has door sensors, a dashboard message and horn ‘chirps’ that remind drivers to check the back seat.

This year 29 children have died from heatstroke while in a hot vehicle.  This makes 2018 one of the deadliest on record. Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash related vehicular deaths.

Nissan plans to announce  a system that will remind drivers to check for occupants in the back seat. Nissan’s system will become standard on all four-door trucks, cars and SUVs with power locks by its 2022 model year. Nissan is believed to be the first to make such an alert a standard feature across its fleet of applicable vehicles, a move safety-advocates have long recommended.

You have reminders for seat-belts, but should you really have a reminder not to leave your children in the hot car?

Smart Irrigation Month

When you water your lawn this summer, keep these things in mind:

As much as 50% of water used for watering is wasted because of inefficient methods. July is Smart Irrigation Month, a great time to make smart changes to save water and money!

What is Smart Irrigation Month?

Smart Irrigation Month is a public awareness campaign to promote efficient water use. Using water wisely:

  • Saves money on your utility bill.

  • Nurtures green spaces that deliver real environmental benefits.

  • Protects your community’s water supply for generations to come.

  • Minimizes needed investments in infrastructure to store and carry water, which must be paid for by property taxes or municipal bonds.

Automatic watering or sprinkler systems — known in the trade as irrigation systems — deliver exactly the right amount of water at the right time. Efficient irrigation systems:

  • Minimize overwatering while keeping your lawn and garden beautiful and healthy.

  • Adjust watering automatically to account for rain and other conditions.

  • Put every drop of water to work by minimizing evaporation and waste.

  • Make maintaining your yard easy and convenient.

Thunderstorm Tips

No place outside is safe when a thunderstorm is in the area. It is best to seek shelter in a building or hard-topped metal vehicle as fast as you can. If you can’t, use these lightning safety tips to reduce the probability of you or someone else being struck by lightning.

Always be prepared if the worst should happen. A thunderstorm is considered severe if it produces hail at least 1 inch in diameter or has wind gusts of at least 58 miles per hour. Every thunderstorm produces lightning, which kills more people each year than tornadoes or hurricanes. Heavy rain from thunderstorms can cause flash flooding, and high winds can damage homes and blow down trees and utility poles, causing widespread power outages. During a thunderstorm make sure you stay away from windows, electrical equipment, and telephones. Make sure your insurance covers damage that can be caused by storms.
