Oceanside Community Safety patrollers and Block Watch participants remind you to help lock out auto crime.
The crossing guard is taking on a big responsibility when it comes to helping our children cross busy highways and intersections on their way to and from school each day. Traffic is in a hurry, the children don't always pay the attention that they should and sometimes the road conditions are poor or visibility is not good. It is not a job to be taken lightly!
During this time period the Oceanside RCMP received 317 complaints.

I watched a particularly foolish driver the other afternoon who decided to cross over two lanes of traffic in order to prepare for a left turn about a kilometer ahead. This driver zoomed across all the lanes without pause, ending up in the left hand lane about three vehicle lengths ahead of a heavy truck.
During this time period the Oceanside RCMP received 298 complaints.
Tow trucks are too expensive! I've got a chain and a buddy to do the steering and apply the brakes, so we'll just drag that broken down vehicle home and fix it ourselves. Think of the money we'll save doing it this way!
