Police urge drivers to watch for trick or treaters
With trick or treaters sure to be on Oak Park streets from 3 – 7 p.m., today, Police are urging drivers to take care – particularly at intersections. Parents also are urged to accompany young children, especially after dark, and inspect all treats. Click here for more information on trick-or-treating safety.
Standard time returns this weekend
Standard time officially returns at 2 a.m., Sun., Nov. 4, when we fall back one hour. Public safety officials urge residents to use the time change as a reminder to replace batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Working detectors can double the chances of survival by providing critical extra time for safe escape. For more information on fire safety, call 708.445.3300 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pace offers real-time information
Regular riders of Pace buses can get real-time arrival and departure information via the web, quick response (QR) codes at many shelters and soon via text messages. The WebWatch system generates estimated arrival times via a satellite-based communications technology similar to the global positioning systems (GPS) now common in many cars. Commuters can find an estimate of the next three times a Pace bus will be at their bus stop and even see where the bus is, in real time, on a map. Click here for more information.
