With warmer weather comes more people frequenting the roadways on the peninsula, and caution is advised. Door County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Pat McCarty stresses that drivers are going to have to be more cautious and aware that more people will be sharing the roadway.
McCarty also encourages being a step ahead by anticipating the unanticipated when it comes to other pedestrian activities on roads. He also urges drivers to understand that cyclists are granted rights for sharing the road.
Another thing for drivers to be aware of is that it is construction season. McCarty pointed out a construction project that will be taking place on County HWY A in the near future which will affect traffic and also increase construction traffic in the area.
