DRIVE SAFE ALABAMA SAYS

GET READY FOR THE FLASH!

YELLOW FLASHING LIGHT

A brand new traffic light with a flashing
yellow arrow is going to help traffic flow
smoother.  If you see a flashing yellow
arrow in the left turn lane, just yield to
oncoming traffic and then turn when
clear.  You'll be on your way in a flash!
Installation of new traffic lights which
have the flashing yellow arrow has
already begun in Baldwin County.

WHY AREN'T ALABAMA RESIDENTS
WEARING SEAT BELTS?


SEAT BELT

From driver's education to roadside billboards,
the mantra to buckle up is drilled into drivers
from childhood.  However, in 2014, more than
240 people died in Alabama car accidents
who were not wearing seat belts.

Do you buckle up each time you drive or ride
in an automobile?  Are you sure that your
teenagers buckle up when they are out in a
vehicle without you?  Cassie Fambro of
al.com wrote the following article which
should serve as a reminder to each of us as
we drive or ride in an automobile.

Why Aren't Alabamians Wearing Seat Belts?

TEXTING WHILE DRIVING IS
DANGEROUS AND AGAINST THE LAW
IN SPANISH FORT


TEXTING WHILE DRIVING

Please remember that texting while driving is
not only life-threatening, but is illegal in the
City of Spanish Fort.  Ordinance No. 399-2011
prohibits texting while driving within Spanish
Fort's City limits and is an offense punishable
by fine and/or imprisonment.

Don't place yourself in the situation where
your next next message could be your last!

We greatly anticipate all that this new
amenity will bring to our City and its residents.

Spanish Fort's first Public Library,
we would like to hear from you!

for this wonderful new facility?
Please send your questions and
comments to the Library Director.
