Safety Alert

Some utility companies require their crews to do what they call, "Walk the Safety Circle" which entails walking around the vehicle to be certain there isn’t anything or anybody in the "blind spot" that could be injured or damaged when they drive away. One of the local utility companies shared the photo below of an incident that was discovered by Walking the Safety Circle . Had this not been discovered before the driver drove away it would have been catastrophic.

Just a quick reminder to check the blind spots of your vehicle before you drive away; especially if there are children in the neighborhood.
