My father used to tell me the government has many responsibilities, and amongst those is to insure that citizens are informed and current in their knowledge needed to perform their civic duties. This is the case in the presentation to the community of the “Safe and Defensive Driving” event to be held at Lake Wales City Hall, at 6 p.m. Sept. 9.
The Lake Wales Police Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Highway Patrol, and State Farm Insurance will unite forces and present to the citizens of Lake Wales a didactic event with hopes the information included in this presentation will bring to the citizen in need to safe lives through individual safe driving. If there is an important program in which the attendance of the citizens is of paramount importance, this is the one.
The facts indicate the nation is losing too many human lives due to careless driving. Our nation is being robbed of many talents because many of our youths are being killed in traffic accidents. This is why the attendance to this event is important. The Lake Wales Citizen and Police Community Relations Committee exhorts all of you citizens of Lake Wales to attend this program, including youths, high school students, and any other future driver. There will be demonstrations, practical exercises, literature and more. Do not miss this great didactic opportunity, it is free of charge. All are invited.
