With area schools dismissed for the summer months and people doing more traveling, the Town of Davidson asks citizens to exercise an increased sense of caution when driving, walking, and bicycling on roadways. Drivers need to be alert for more pedestrians and cyclists (including children), pedestrians need to look both ways and comply with crossing signs, and cyclists, please remember to wear your helmets.
“Summer is a more relaxed time of year, but that doesn’t mean our vigilance should be relaxed,” said Davidson Police Chief Penny Dunn. “Thanks for your help in keeping everyone safe -- motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists.”
Also, the Davidson Police Department reminds families with elementary age children to come out for “Custard with a Cop” on Saturday, June 16 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Whit’s Frozen Custard located at 428 S. Main Street. Children will be able to engage with our police officers while enjoying vanilla or chocolate frozen custard. Police officers will talk with attendees about personal safety, such as how to handle strangers and crossing the street safely. They will also display a police cruiser for all to see. The Davidson Fire Department will also be present to display a fire truck.
