Peachtree City Updates reminds neighbors of proper crosswalk usage

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. – (submitted by Peachtree City Updates) With 90 miles of paths, Peachtree City has a lot of striped cross-walks that may not be at a typical intersection. Path users should STOP and look before proceeding into a crosswalk, and wait if a car is approaching. 

Once a path user (pedestrian, bicycle, or cart) is in the crossing, cars should slow and yield right-of-way to the user in the crossing. No carts on Highway Crosswalks- motorized carts are prohibited from crossing the State Highways in Peachtree City except in tunnels or on bridges (the crossing at Publix on the east side of town is enforced by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department, which we understand allows carts to cross at that location). 

Low Speed Vehicles can cross State Highways in the regular traffic lane if they are on streets with a speed limit of 35 mph or less on both sides of the highway.

Military cookout benefits U.S. troops

Military cookout benefits U.S. troops

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- The rising costs of gas and goods and services didn’t slow down donations for local troops at the ninth annual Military Cookout hosted by the Fayette County Public School System’s Transportation Department.

The cookout raised over $2,600, about a $100 increase over last year. Gift cards will be purchased with the proceeds for Fayette’s men and women who are serving in any branch of the U.S. Military worldwide. Bus drivers Linda Mosley and Susan Voyles, whose idea it was to start the cookout following the 9-11 terrorists attacks, say they are grateful for the community’s support.

“This function has provided for our American heroes who have so bravely and proudly defended this country and her freedoms. For that, there are no words to express our gratitude. Because of these men and women, this country remains the greatest nation on earth.
