PennDOT Survey Open Until Oct. 20
What do you think of PennDOT’s construction and maintenance services? Motorists have until Friday, Oct. 20, to provide feedback via an online survey.
The 24-question survey asks respondents how they receive PennDOT roadway information and how often PennDOT meets or exceeds expectations regarding construction and maintenance services. Respondents are also asked about experiences with reporting concerns to their department, and whether or how they use the state’s 511PA traveler information services.
Enjoy PA’s Gorgeous Fall Foliage
Some of the world’s most beautiful fall colors are in Pennsylvania. Our state also has a longer and more varied fall foliage season than any other state in the nation.
Find prime locations for viewing fall foliage in the commonwealth, as well as information about scenic driving tours, here.
Of course, there are all sorts of fun things to do in Pennsylvania this fall beyond leaf peeping. Read about autumn tourism activities – including partaking in festivals, enjoying seasonal foods and exploring architectural marvels – here.
Brush Up on School Bus Safety
School Bus Safety Week, Oct. 16-20, is the perfect time for students, parents and drivers to brush up on traffic safety rules.
For students, this means knowing how to safely board, ride and exit the school bus. For parents and all drivers, this means knowing what to do on the road when a school bus is in the area and being aware of the penalties associated with breaking Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping Law.
Detailed school bus safety information is available online.
