Provost Marshall says: Obey posted speed limits in Europe

Posted by on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 in Featured | 0 comments


Know those speed cameras that are permanent fixtures on some roads or intersections? Watch your speed after you pass them, there may be another one close by.

In Europe there are roads and intersections that have fixed (permanent) speed cameras. European police authorities have now adjusted their speed camera enforcement measures by adding additional cameras, both fixed and mobile after the older known cameras. They found that drivers slowed for the known cameras and then accelerated afterwards. When this happens the prosecutors state that the speeding event was a deliberate disregard for the posted signs and fines are doubled and suspension periods are issued or lengthened. This program is used in several countries in Europe to include Germany, Belgium, and Spain.

Don’t risk it, obey the posted speed limits.

Posted by on Monday, February 23, 2015 in Featured | 0 comments

What programs and services would you like Child, Youth and School Services to provide? Are your expectations with CYSS being met? Are your children receiving the highest quality care? What services have been the most beneficial to your children and family?

Parents of children participating in CYSS programs and CYSS staff members can voice their opinions by taking a brief CYSS Patron Satisfaction Survey, facilitated by the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Directorate and Installation Management Command. A link to the online survey will be sent to all Families currently enrolled in one of the many CYSS programs and the staff members at USAG Ansbach.

The confidential survey will be open for two weeks during the month of March.

The CYSS Patron Satisfaction and Staff Climate Survey provides an opportunity to measure use, helpfulness of individual CYSS offerings and identify emerging needs related to military Families.

Parents and employees will receive an online link to log on and complete the survey.
