A deer/vehicle crash is very common in Door County. ๐ŸฆŒ

#BeAlert for deer on the roadways.

Be alert for deer on roadways. More than 18,000 deer/vehicle crashes were reported in Wisconsin in 2019. If you hit a deer:

1. Get your vehicle safely off the road if possible. .
2. Contact law enforcement, be prepared to provide your specific location.
3. Stay buckled-up inside your vehicle and wait for help to arrive. Getting out of your vehicle and walking around a highway is always dangerous.

Traffic Law Tuesday: STOP for School Busses

A vehicle that approaches a stopped school bus that is displaying flashing red warning lights, must stop not less than 20 feet from the bus and remain stopped until the bus resumes motion or the operator extinguishes the flashing red warning lights.

With school in session, this is a common complaint we receive. Let's keep our kids safe!

The 18th Annual Chop "N" Shop with a Cop in 2020 will be a little different this year. Donations to this awesome program can be made to the Door County Sheriff's Office.

โ€œIt takes a Community" to help us make this possible every year!

We will be holding our 18th Annual Chop โ€œNโ€ Shop with a Cop Program this year. This year probably more than any other with all of the things going on and changes in our youthโ€™s lifeโ€™s due to the pandemic we feel itโ€™s extremely important to hold this yearโ€™s event.

As much as we would love to hold the event exactly as we have for the past 16 years, weโ€™ve decided to offer a revised program for the safety of all involved. This year we will focus on a one on one interaction between Law Enforcement and youth verses a group event.

We have worked with school districts to help identify area families who may need a little extra help this holiday season. On December 5th Law Enforcement Officers will deliver each family a Christmas tree, turkey with all the fixings they need to have a healthy holiday family dinner and gifts for all school aged children in the household.

The Chop "N" Shop with a Cop program is only made possible through the kindness of so many businesses and community members who donate and help make this event possible every year. If you would like to donate, checks can be made out to JPLA. Donations can be dropped off at the
Sheriff's Office or mailed to:

Information from the City of Sturgeon Bay.

Notice: Upcoming Closure of S Neenah Ave from E Maple Street to Highway 42/57

Today (October 22nd) you will likely start to see some message boards around town that will be alerting everyone of an upcoming roadway closure on S Neenah Ave from E Maple Street to Highway 42/57. This closure is scheduled to begin on Wednesday October 28th and if things go well we hope to see the roadway reopened in late December. ATC will be blocking off the center of the roadway to create room to construct the conduits that will be needed to complete their new electric transmission line beneath the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal. While doing this it will essentially turn the remaining portions of S Neenah Ave into one way โ€œalleysโ€ that are intended for use by only people who directly live within the closed areas of the roadway and essential services (emergency vehicles, garbage collection, snow plowing, etc.). The attached letter from ATC was recently mailed to the residents directly affected and gives a little bit more information regarding the closure and how people will be able to navigate through the area if required.

For your safety, and the safety of the crews working on these conduits, I strongly encourage all to take this roadway closure very seriously, and this will also be good practice for next spring when we start the asphalt replacement throughout this same area.

Rain is expected to lift north into central and east-central Wisconsin today as an area of low pressure moves northeast along a cold front. Farther to the north where colder air resides, snow will fall with an accumulation of 2 to 5 inches across Vilas County where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect. Rainfall will increase this afternoon with isolated thunderstorms south of Highway 29. The showers/storms will continue into tonight with heavy rains expected.

National Teen Driver Safety Week takes place October 18 to 24, 2020.

National Teen Driver Safety Week is dedicated to raising awareness and seeking solutions to prevent teen injuries and deaths on the road.

Car accident prevention statistics show that there are three common critical errors newly licensed teen drivers make that lead to serious crashes: lack of scanning to detect and respond to hazards, driving too fast for road conditions, and being distracted by something inside or outside of the vehicle.

School Resource Officers Mark Hilsabeck, Heather Bemmann, Greg Medlen and Derek Jennerjohn would like to share a few things with you to go over with your teen driver.

Look to the Sides โ€“ At any time, other vehicles or pedestrians may cross or enter your travel path. You should search to make sure other roadway users will not cross your travel path. This is especially true at intersections and highway-railroad grade crossings.

Adjusting Speed - The faster your vehicle is going, the more time and distance it will take for turning, slowing or stopping. Driving safely means adjusting your vehicle speed for roadway and traffic conditions, seeing well ahead in the travel path, providing an adequate following interval, and obeying the appropriate speed limits.

Adjusting to Roadway Conditions - There are road conditions where you must reduce speed to be safe, such as before a sharp curve, when the roadway is slippery or when there is a potential for animals standing on the roadway.

Distracted Driving - Is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation systemโ€”anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

Texting - is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.
You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.

Seat Belt Safety Starts with You!

The safest choice you can make as a driver or passenger is to buckle up!
