The City of Dunkirk Police Department is issuing the following safety reminders to everyone during the Thanksgiving Holiday.

1. Please plan properly for trips by checking the weather and road conditions.

2. Allow plenty of time to reach your destination, take frequent breaks while driving.

3. Be prepared to adjust driving as the road conditions change

4. Always wear seatbelts and please make sure children are in a child safety seat. It’s a proven fact that seatbelts and child safety seats save lives.

5. Keep an emergency pack in the vehicle including blankets, water, snacks and a flashlight.

6. We wish for everyone to enjoy the holiday with family and friends but if you have celebrated too much and can’t safely operate a vehicle please don’t. Designate a safe driver ahead of time. Please don’t create a tragedy as your remembrance of this holiday.

7. If you encounter reckless operators do not confront them, pull off the road and call 911 with the description and direction of travel.

The Dunkirk Police Department wishes everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday.
