  5. Bike Safety By: Rob Baquera, Public Information Officer, Roseville Police Department As Roseville residents we are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful city with a historic downtown area and plenty of biking and walking trails. One of the many available outdoor activities for us to enjoy, especially as the weather starts too cool down, is an evening bike ride. Bicyclists of any age face multiple hazards: bike performance, distracted drivers, pedestrians, and varying road conditions. There are several safety measures every rider should take before beginning and during their bike ride. Before your ride, inspect your bike using the ABC method: A – Air pressure – make sure the tires are properly inflated, and make sure there is no visible damage to the tire tread or sidewall. B – Brakes – inspect brake pads and replace any that are less than ¼” thick and make any necessary adjustments to ensure they are not rubbing on the tires or spokes. C – Cranks, Chain, and Cassette – make sure the crank bolts are tightened properly; check the chain for appropriate placement and length; and make sure the cassette (cluster of sprockets that the chain connects to in order to switch gears) is in place and that the chain does not skip when pedaling. When riding your bike, it is important to be seen and ride safely. Some simple tips include: Wear bright colors, reflective if possible and make sure your bike is equipped with a flashlight or that you’re wearing a headlamp. Always wear a proper fitting helmet. Ride a safe distance away from parked cars to avoid being hit by anyone exiting their vehicle, and when possible try to make eye contact with the driver. And lastly, but very important, is to follow the rules of the road when riding your bike: Follow traffic laws – such as riding in the same direction as the flow of traffic and stop at stop signs or red lights. Use hand signals to indicate direction, especially when coming to an intersection. Using the ABC method to inspect your bike before a ride, wearing bright colors and a proper fitting helmet, and following the rules of the road can help provide a safer and more enjoyable ride. If you ever have questions on bike safety rules or want to report a stolen bike, please contact the Roseville Police Department or submit an online crime report on the Department’s website.

  14. The Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District has confirmed the first mosquito sample to test positive for West Nile virus in 2020. The mosquitoes were collected in a mosquito trap in western Placer County near Baseline and Pleasant Grove Roads. Since spring, District technicians have treated immature mosquito populations to prevent adult mosquito development. Despite our best efforts, as the temperature continues to rise, adult mosquito abundance and WNV activity in birds and mosquitoes increase at this time of year. In areas with high risk of WNV transmission, the District will conduct adult mosquito control operations. WNV is a potentially serious illness transmitted through the bite of a mosquito and there is no cure. The best way to avoid WNV is to prevent mosquito bites with an EPA-registered repellent, dump and drain standing water on your property to prevent mosquito breeding and if you think you have a mosquito problem, contact the District to submit a service request. To date, there has been no information or evidence to suggest that the new coronavirus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. Read More Placer County has over 30 different species of mosquitoes. Two of those 30 species are most responsible for transmitting West Nile virus to humans. To the untrained eye, it is hard to see the difference between mosquito species. We conduct surveillance throughout the county to keep track of mosquito species and mosquito-borne diseases. The easiest and best way to avoid WNV is to prevent mosquito bites. Use an EPA-registered repellent. Wear long sleeves and pants or consider staying indoors during dusk and dawn. Make sure screens on windows and doors are in good condition. Get rid of mosquito breeding sites by emptying standing water. Read More Copyright © 2020 Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District, All rights reserved.

  19. Back-to-School Safety By: Rob Baquera, Public Information Officer, Roseville Police Department It is unknown what school will look like in the fall, but one thing is certain: kids will be using technology more and more. From chat forums, to google classroom to Zoom meetings, we’re confident kids will be spending more time online for educational and entertainment purposes. Kids with online access have many opportunities to socialize and get education; however, those opportunities present both benefits and risks. Adults can be a vital influence in helping to reduce some of those risks. Some benefits of online access include staying connected with friends and family; watching educational videos on sites like YouTube; learning a new skill or craft; and participating in their school’s virtual learning. Some of the risks include cyberbullying; sexting; and exposure to content that is not age appropriate. Ways parents, family members, or adults can help keep kids safe online is to talk to them about potential risks. Having open communication about what content is age-appropriate can also help kids make better and safer decisions. A major risk for kids to know about is cyber security; this risk has the potential to cause emotional or physical harm. Kids should know about phishing (fraudulent email or communication intended to get the recipient to click a link or reveal personal information) and email scams. They should never provide any financial information in a text (a phone conversation is better suited for that type of information exchange). Most important, kids should be instructed to never give their personal information (e.g., name, age, school, home address, etc.) to anyone they communicate with online, unless they have adult or parental permission to do so. Kids should know how to block numbers on their cell phone – especially when they receive messages from people they do not know or receive content they did not subscribe to. It’s also very important that kids do not take, send, or forward any sexually explicit photos, videos, or messages from a mobile device. That kind of content is known as sexting and can have damaging and lasting effects on their reputation and friendships, but more importantly, it can be a violation of state law. When kids know and understand the consequences, they tend to make better choices. If they have questions or have had a negative online experience, they should know that they can ask their parent(s), teacher, trusted adult, or school resource officer.
