Red Flags of rental scams:
1. They won’t meet in person. 2. They want you to move in immediately, without ever seeing the property.
3. They ask you to mail or wire the money. 4. The price is TOO good to be true. 5. The listing has typos, poor grammar or excessive punctuation.

We recently took a report of an incident that involved a local property being rented out over Facebook. The person who was advertising the property was not the rightful owner or landlord and stole the security deposit of the victim wanting to rent the location. Beware of scams...

Always headlights, never brights. Avoid using high-beam headlights in fog as fog consists of tiny water droplets that spread and reflect light.

Stay focused on the road. Driving in fog is not a time for multi-tasking.

We have had some foggy mornings lately! Here are a couple of reminders for your morning commute.

Slow down. Driving at normal speeds in fog can be very dangerous. This also means leaving earlier for your destination.
