Lake Safety: Lake It Slow
Traffic and speeding on the narrow roads around Lake Waramaug has increased dramatically, and “near-misses” have unfortunately become too frequent an occurrence. This week marks the start of LAKE IT SLOW, a new, community-wide Lake Waramaug road safety initiative.
What’s the easiest and most effective way to make the roads around Lake Waramaug safer? YOU. Everyone’s actions make a difference. Please drive at or below the posted legal speed limits. Watch out for walkers, runners, cyclists, & vehicles around every curve.
Bike single file with traffic. Run/Walk single file facing traffic, except around blind curves. Look for LAKE IT SLOW signs posted around the Lake, and enhanced speed patrols in coordination with our local CT State Troopers and the towns of Washington, Warren, and Kent.
It’s up to all of us who love Lake Waramaug to keep each other safe — and we can, if we LAKE IT SLOW.
