Warmer temperatures of spring and summer bring more foot traffic to Russell streets. Russell Police Chief Dale Weimaster reminds folks - motorists and pedestrians alike - to always pay attention when out and about.
Weimaster says drivers need to be mindful of their surroundings and slow down near parks and other high foot traffic areas because you never know when an adult, or especially a child, might enter the roadway for some reason.
For pedestrians, specifically walkers or joggers, Weimaster says it's a good idea to think about what you are wearing when you're out running.
