AD­VICE AS THE FES­TIVE SEA­SON STARTS

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

WITH school hol­i­days start­ing for all Queens­land schools this Fri­day the com­mu­nity needs to be mindful of a few things. Chil­dren: Tablelands Po­lice would like to re­mind mo­torists to slow down and drive to con­di­tions, this not only means weather con­di­tions but also chil­dren play­ing in res­i­den­tial streets. Slow down and ex­pect the un­ex­pected, chil­dren are un­pre­dictable and don’t stop to think about cars when they are chas­ing that ball that got away from them. Par­ents are also re­minded to pro­vide ad­e­quate su­per­vi­sion for chil­dren over the school hol­i­day break. His­tor­i­cally there has been a spike in of­fences rang­ing from tres­pass to theft by un­su­per­vised chil­dren.

In­stalling elec­tri­cal timers that will au­to­mat­i­cally turn lights on and off in your home can be a great de­ter­rent to in­trud­ers. A fi­nal check of all ex­ter­nal doors and win­dows be­fore you leave the house and dis­con­nect­ing the re­mote con­trol and elec­tronic garage doors can save you heartache later. Hol­i­days: Are you go­ing on hol­i­days? If your an­swer is yes, then you need to think about a few things. If you are driv­ing this hol­i­day sea­son, have you ser­viced your ve­hi­cle lately? Do you have ev­ery­thing you need? We want ev­ery­one to have a safe hol­i­day and to make al­ter­na­tive means of trans­port if drink­ing.
