Tip of the Week
School’s Open - Drive Carefully
The Monrovia Police Department and the Automobile Club of Southern California (AAA) are reminding drivers to be aware when school is open and to “Pay Attention, Slow Down, and Watch for Children.”
The Police Department has placed posters sponsored by AAA in and around our schools in
remind motorists to slow down in school zones and watch for children.
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, a pedestrian struck by a
vehicle traveling at a reduced school zone speed of 25 mph is nearly two-thirds
less likely to be killed compared to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling
just 10 mph faster. School zone
speed limits are in place to save lives. Monrovia
In addition to slowing down, AAA offers the following advice for motorists to keep children safe as they navigate their way through school zones:
Ditch distractions - Research shows that taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of crashing.
Stay alert - Don’t rush into and out of driveways. Expect pedestrians on the sidewalk, especially around schools and in neighborhoods.
Stop at stop signs - It sounds obvious, but research shows that more than one third of drivers roll through stop signs in school zones or neighborhoods.
Watch for bikes - Children on bicycles are often unpredictable; expect the unexpected.
Brake for buses - A recent National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services survey showed that over 75,000 vehicles pass stopped school buses on a typical day, with more than three percent passing on the right. Not only is it dangerous, it’s against the law.
Plan ahead - Leave early for your destination and build in extra time for congestion. If possible, modify your route to avoid school zones.

The Summer Heat is On! – Tips for Seniors to Stay Safe and Cool!
Summer is a time for vacations and outdoor activities, but the heat and health risks of the summer heat should not be taken lightly, especially for the elderly. As a person becomes older, they become less sensitive to higher temperatures, putting the elderly more at risk to heat related illness. The elderly are more likely to not notice the warning signs of heat-related diseases and injury. Health conditions caused by the heat can range from heat stroke, the most serious, cramps cause by lack of water intake, nausea and weakness, to headaches caused by exhaustion due to the summer heat. Following are some tips for seniors to stay safe and cool during the summer heat:
Maintain plenty of water in-take to keep hydrated, about 4-8 glasses a day; eating fresh fruits and vegetables can also help hydrate the body.
Reduce strenuous activities during hot weather. Exercise in the cool morning and evening hours to avoid the heat.
Avoid too much sun and always use sunblock when going outdoors for prolonged periods of time.
When planning for a family outing in the summer, ensure there are cool places with shade and ventilation for seniors to retreat to.
When the heat rises to extreme temperatures, seniors should stay in cool places out of the sun, such as an air-conditioned room.
Snack on cool treats, such as popsicles, ice cream, and other frozen treats to keep cool.
If you have an elderly family member or friend, check on them or have a neighbor check on them to ensure their safety during hot summer months.
If you see signs of heat exhaustion or dehydration, such as weakness, nausea, heavy sweating or no sweating, rapid pulse, or fainting, move the senior immediately to the nearest cool shaded area and provide with ventilation and hydrants like cool juice or water. You can also help cool them down by applying a cold compress. Call for medical assistance immediately if it is necessary.

Beat the Heat – Check the Back Seat
Never leave your child alone in a vehicle – It’s the Law!
Law Requires: That a parent,
legal guardian, or other person responsible for a child who is 6 years of age
or younger, may not leave that child inside a motor vehicle without the
supervision of someone 12 years of age or older. California
Between May of 1998 to May of 2012, 527 children died of hyperthermia from being left alone in a motor vehicle in the
This is a completely preventable statistic. On a mild day of 80 degrees, the
inside of a vehicle can heat quickly. In only 10 minutes raising the inside
temperature of the vehicle to 99 degrees, in 20 minutes to 109 degrees, in 30
minutes to 114 degrees, and 60 minutes to 123 degrees. It is never safe to
leave a child alone in a parked car because the sun’s radiation warms
objects inside of the car, such as the dashboard, steering wheel, child seat,
etc., then these heated objects quickly heat the trapped air inside of the car,
similarly to that of a convection oven. United States
To help bring awareness to this issue, the National Weather Service is using the slogan "Beat the Heat, Check the Back Seat" to remind people to remember to check for small children in a car seat, and to never leave children unattended in a vehicle, even for a few moments. Remember that pets should also never be left in a vehicle during the summer months. Never Leave a child unattended in a vehicle - not even for a minute! If you see a child unattended in a hot vehicle, call 9-1-1 immediately! If a child is missing, always check the car first!
