Three little words

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 7:30pm

We have three words of advice to all of those visiting and living in our little community for the next few months: Stop. Look. Listen.

In the context of the summer, these three little words have two distinct purposes.

As for the first, Block Island is going to be a treat for all the sens-es. Enjoy it. Take it in. Remember it.

The second comes in the form of a recommendation: Be careful. Stop, look, and listen to everything that is going on around you so that you are safe.

There is an astonishing amount of traffic on our small village roads, created by a dizzying variety of vehicles, not all of which, sadly, are operated by people paying strict attention. Obey the rules, cross at crosswalks, come to a full stop at a stop sign, don’t ride side- by-side on the mopeds, and try not to stop and have a chat in the mid- dle of the road.

Summer on Block Island is a glorious time of year. Take the time to safely enjoy every minute of it while you are here.
