Am I still a safe driver?

Driving is a complex activity requiring a variety of high-level
thinking skills as well as a certain degree of physical strength, flexibility and coordination. As we age, we can experience decline in a number of areas that affect the ability to drive.

Things to watch for include:
» Reduced ability to quickly react
» Decreased vision capability
» Slower visual processing speed

It is important to take the responsibility of driving seriously and understand how changes in both mental and physical ability can affect driving. A person may be a great driver for many years until a medical condition or age related infirmity results in a loss of the ability to drive safely. This can happen at any age.

No one should be expected to give up his or her driver license
based solely on age. Driving is a privilege, and that privilege should be extended to anyone who is able to drive safely and responsibly. As a driver, you play an essential role in making that determination.

A SELF-ASSESSMENT GUIDE
Use this guide to help you to determine if you may need to change your driving habits, or explore other avenues of transportation.
* Do other drivers honk or pass you frequently, even when traffic is moving relatively slowly?
*Do you become nervous or anxious when approaching intersections?
*Do you arrive at a location and not remember how you got there?
* Do you notice dents and dings on your vehicle and do not
know how they got there?
* Have you found yourself in more close calls and
near misses on the road?
* Do family or friends comment negatively on your driving habits?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then it could be time to recognize that your motor skills may be declining.

Based on your “yes” answers, now ask yourself:
* Are there ways I can improve my driving habits?
*Am I physically in shape to drive? H Am I taking medications that could affect my ability to drive safely?
*Should I consider public transportation or alternate means of transportation?

If the answers to these questions indicate a need for change, there is help available. Click on the below link and turn to the last chapter of the handbook for helpful contact information.

PRESS RELEASE

Date: October, 19 2020 Type: Placement of Sex Offender

Released by: Captain Robert J. Hall
262-741-4441
Narrative

The following is a press release authorized by a core team made up of representatives from local law enforcement, and Department of Corrections. The core team evaluates and makes decisions on the level of notification to the community for the pending release of sex offenders under Wisconsin Statute 301.46 (Act 440). Community notification furthers the interest of public safety and it is our belief that a better-informed public is a safer public.

The Walworth County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the following information pursuant to Wisconsin Statute 301.46(Act 440) which authorizes law enforcement agencies to inform the public of a sex offenders release when that information will enhance public safety and awareness.

Kenneth D. Potter age 55 was convicted in the State of Wisconsin of sex crimes. Potter’s known victims have been teen and adult males. Potter is a homeless individual. Potter will be released on October 23, 2020.

Potter will be on supervision with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. Potter will be required to participate in lifetime, Global Positioning Satellite tracking.

Citizen abuse of this information to threaten, intimidate, or harass registered sex offenders will not be tolerated. Further, such abuse could subject those who commit such acts to criminal penalties, and potentially end law enforcement’s ability to conduct community notification. We believe the only person who wins if community notification ends is the sex offender, since sex offenders derive their power through secrecy.

Potter is not wanted by the police. Additional information is available at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Sex Offender Registry Website located at http://offender.doc.state.wi.us/public/.

The weather, water temperature, and your activity play a part in the kind of life jacket you need to wear. A vest-type life jacket is a good option in cold weather, but a float coat is even better. Man's best friend should wear a life jacket too. #LifeJacketsWornNobodyMourns

GRANDPARENT SCAM - DON’T FALL FOR IT

Across the nation, con artists are scamming grandparents out of thousands of dollars by posing as grandchildren in distress.

Below is advice taken from the Wisconsin Department of Consumer Affairs web site. Take the time to read it and do not become a victim of the Grandparents Scam”!

“Grandparents Scam
Thousands of senior citizens are victimized every year by “grandparent” related scams. The scammers contact elderly people and impersonate a family member or friend desperately in need of money due to a supposed emergency and convince the elderly person to send money quickly.

Most commonly the scammer will pretend to be a grandchild with the scammer attempting to confuse the facts, create panic, and get the grandparent to act on emotion. They want the grandparent to wire money quickly without thinking it through or asking questions. The scammer’s message will almost always include an urgent situation – I have been arrested, or mugged, or am in the hospital – Please help!

The scammer (acting as the grandchild) will insist that the grandparent not tell parents or anyone else about the embarrassing situation or the request for money. The supposed grandchild will play up the act by promising to pay the grandparents back.

The scammer’s story tends to work best if they can convince the grandparent that they (the supposed grandchild) are traveling outside the country or even in another state. This situation allows the scammer to confuse the facts about the local laws, act like the phone connection is poor, or to justify why the money must be sent by wire transfer.

If asked why their voice sounds funny, the scammer will usually claim that their nose or mouth was injured or the phone connection is poor.

Once the grandparent wires the money, more calls may follow, asking for even more money. With this trick, the scammer will likely involve other callers to pose as police, attorneys, doctors, or bail bondsmen reconfirming the story and the claim for more money.
Calls may occur late at night or early in the morning to try and catch you when you are tired and not thinking clearly. With the advancements in technology and social media sites, scammers are finding it easier to acquire personal information on the person they are claiming to be and/or of the grandparents they are calling.

Even with small pieces of information, scammers are very clever at getting elderly people to fill in the missing gaps for them.

Examples:
1. If the caller says, “hi grandpa.” Ask them “Who is calling?” Avoid saying, “Is that you Billy?”
2. If the caller says that “It is me, your grandson.” Ask them “which one?”
3. If you know that the grandchild is actually traveling, do not ask them if they are still in (Mexico, England, or etc.). Instead, ask, “Where are you calling from?”
Do not believe everything you hear, and be sure to verify the emergency situation before you give them any contact information, account information and especially before you send any money.

The Bureau of Consumer Protection offers the following steps to help prevent you from becoming a victim to such scams:
• Be suspicious of anyone who calls unexpectedly asking for money.
• Stay calm and do not make quick decisions or react without thinking about the situation.
• Never wire money based on a request made over the phone or in an e-mail... especially overseas. Wiring money is like giving cash – once you send it, you will not get it back. Same for cashier’s checks and personal checks – Do Not Send!
• Resist the urge or pressure to act quickly. Scammers want you to send money quickly so that you do not have time to verify their claims.
• Never provide the caller with credit card numbers or other banking information.
• Verify the emergency, check the story out with someone else in your family or circle of friends, even if you have been told to keep it a secret.
• Research the situation by contacting law enforcement or the hospital to verify your family member is there. If they are not, report the situation. • If you attempt to contact your grandchild directly, use a number that you know is theirs and not the number the caller provided.
• Verify the person’s identity by asking questions that a stranger could not possibly answer. Scammers may have some personal information on you or your loved ones.
• Do not fill in blank spots. Refrain from mentioning other family member’s names and personal information.
• If you are ever unsure what to do, contact the Bureau of Consumer Protection or your local Law Enforcement agency for assistance.
• Encourage family and friends to not put personal information on social media sites. Scammers and thieves watch for people to list dates and locations of trips they are on, or going to be on.
