DARIEN, Conn. -- Now that spring has finally arrived, Darien First Selectman Jayme Stevenson is asking residents to remember that while enjoying the time outdoors, they need to be safe at the same time.
"There’s so much to celebrate now that spring has finally arrived! Fresh air, beautiful flowers, vibrant new grass and the sounds of happy children at play. The Town of Darien comes alive in the spring with folks of all ages eager to get outside to enjoy our parks, beaches, walking, biking, youth and high school sports and some good ‘ole neighborhood fun," said Stevenson. "Please remember to drive slowly and with keen awareness for our children walking to school, riding bikes and playing outside."
Stevenson also asks parents to remind their teen drivers to be mindful of driving slowly around town as well. "If we all make this our mission, Darien will be a safer and more child, pedestrian and bike-friendly place to live," she added.
