Roadside Safety Tips

Driving safety is your #1 priority. If you are in immediate danger, if possible, move to safety before  calling 9-1-1.

Do not let your wireless phone distract you from driving.

To ensure your safety and the safety of others:

  • Always buckle up and make sure others in your car are wearing seat belts.
  • Keep both hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
  • If you must make or answer a phone call, pull off the road to a safe location.
  • Allow voice mail to handle your calls, and return all calls at your convenience.

You must provide your wireless phone number when placing a 9-1-1 call.
