Saving lives during the busy summer season


During the warmer months, we are constantly on the move, walking, running, biking, driving here and there. The streets and sidewalks in Grand Rapids definitely become a busy place. With that in mind, there are some things you need to be aware of.

Within the city, there’s been some changes in recent year when it comes to the rules of the road involving drivers, bikers and pedestrians.

We all want to be safe, so the City of Grand Rapids has come up with a “Summer of Safety” campaign, teaching people what to watch for, and what to do, to prevent crashes and injuries and ultimately save lives.

This campaign has produced positive results by educating people about the rules of the road, it’s always positive when you see a reduction in accidents, injuries and deaths.

Because of that, this campaign has been nationally recognized. Remember, you can always go to to learn more.
