Heavy rain expected for weekend  
The National Weather Service is predicting heavy rain this weekend. Wet pavement contributes to 73 percent of all weather-related crashes according to the Federal Highway Administration. Heavy rains reduce visibility and may result in flooding. If you see high water on the road turn around, don’t drown.
Wet weather tips:
  • Make sure windshield wipers are in good condition
  • Ensure all headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals are functioning
  • Keep lights on while driving or biking
  • Increase following distance
  • Use extra caution near pedestrians and bicyclists
  • Clear out storm drains of leaves and debris to prevent flooding
