More than ever, drivers are doing everything but driving and Bayside needs you to help local kids cross Brown Deer Road safely.
We've all done it - you're running late, so you're driving on auto-pilot, texting and realize long after you're through the intersection - there were blinking yellow lights and a child was standing there. Luckily, that 10-year-old little boy didn't misjudge traffic and try ot make a run for it because you were driving an auto-pilot and never would have seen him. And with school starting in just more than two weeks, the close-calls will only become more frequent. So, instead of sitting on the sidelines, writing about the close-calls, sadly, waiting to write about a child who has been hit by a car, I'm doing something. I'm partnering with Fox Point and Bayside parents to help kids cross safely. Regent Road and Pelham Parkway cross Brown …

Village Manager Andy Pederson offers some tips for safe travels when bicyclists and vehicles are sharing the village roadways.
The weather has turned, and that means it's perfect for getting out and enjoying everything Bayside has to offer, including walking and biking through the village. While all forms of traffic are welcome, we ask that everyone practice safe habits, and respect other users of the road. When possible, we ask bikers to please ride single file on the narrower, interior roads, to help ease traffic congestion, and to ride quietly and as you live there. Vehicles should also give bicycles plenty of room, and to acknowledge their place on our streets. With everyone working together, we know everyone can enjoy the great weather, and beautiful scenery Bayside has to give. Safe travels!
