Things we can do for homeland security:
Please open your eyes to all you see on the roads you travel. Would you take responsibility in helping those who serve Augusta? Could you help maintain free-flowing drainage ditches and storm drains, straighten traffic signs, report malfunctioning street lights, remove litter and work-from-home litter signs from the rights of way, edge curbs and trim limbs under 8 feet hanging over the street where you live, work, learn, or play?
With Project 365 Days, what problem could you solve in one year?
Do you know and obey your traffic signs and speed limits? Are you an aggressive driver? Call Safe Communities, 667-4691, for a self-test. Do you use turn signals, wear seat belts, and stop at each stop sign? Do you speed or slow down at a yellow light?
Does your home have 3-inch identification numbers, or 4-inch numbers on your business? Augusta passed this code in 1998. Meter readers, emergency workers and newcomers would be grateful.
One person, solving one problem, in one year, could make a difference. The 20th Annual National Night Out Against Crime, on the first Tuesday in August, asks neighborhood associations to use Project 365 Days. For free guidelines call 1-800-NITE-OUT. What can you do to make a difference where you live or drive? Lets show Augusta we care.
