And "Snow" It Begins

The forecast is "predicting" snow starting this evening which means drivers will have to learn how to drive again on those slick roads.  Reminder to give yourself extra time to get to your destination and don't follow to close to the vehicle in front of you in case you are unable to stop.  Although it may be fun, the Sturgeon Bay Police Department doesn't encourage decorating the roadways or parking lots with "donuts" or "cheerios".   Be safe and have a great weekend!

Unwanted Holiday Decoration

After hearing such a clatter a family dashed to the window to not find Santa and his sleigh, but instead a minivan decorating their house.  No one was injured and the juvenile driver may be received a lump of coal for Christmas. 

Doesn’t matter how old you are, please remember to drive your “sleigh” with a valid driver’s license.  The Sturgeon Bay Police Department reminds everyone to be safe this holiday season.

Good Luck Hunters

The Sturgeon Bay Police Department would like to wish all the deer hunters a safe and enjoyable hunting season.

Oops, Wrong Direction

Keep your eyes on the road, as the GPS doesn't always know best! 

When it comes to driving, pay attention to the road and your surroundings.  Accidents happen from talking on the phone, looking at text messages, something dropping on the floor and picking it up, or looking at map or GPS even if it's for a split second.  Thankfully the driver of this vehicle was not injured.
