OBSERVE ALL TRAFFIC RULES

When driving through neighborhood streets, pay attention and observe all rules. For the safety of children, walkers, joggers, etc., drive slow and come to a complete stop at the STOP signs. Do not text or talk on the cell phone while driving. Do so only if you have a hands-free device.

Violating rules can prove to be very costly. So be careful.

KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR PET

Any time your dog is outside your home, make sure the pet is under leash. Why? Because it’s the law. We have found cases in our neighborhood where the owner lets the dog run free in the backyard, not realizing that the gate was open and the dog escaped into the street harming others. So keep your dog under close supervision.

Street Parking

Our neighborhood is routinely patrolled by Harris County Sheriff’s law enforcement department. Automobiles parked on the street on a temporary basis must be positioned such that front of the car is facing the same direction as the flow of traffic. Residents and their guests must also be careful not to park right across from another parked vehicle that can hinder normal flow of traffic passing through.
