Ordinance of the Month
August 2017

  
Ordinance 10-6 Building Numbers
 
Have you ever thought about the importance of having your building or house number ( also known as property address numbers) displayed on the front of your house?   Are you even aware if your building or house number is currently displayed on your building or house?  The difference of having or not having your building number displayed could impact your health, safety and welfare.
Chapter 10 of the City of Tomah Code of Ordinances address the need and requirements for having and displaying assigned building and house numbers. The purpose of the assigned building and house numbers is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the persons and property.  If you have a medical emergency, a fire, or in need police assistance the fastest way to find or identifying your house is by the numbers that are displayed on your house or building.  If your building is not identifiable precious time is wasted and the response time is longer, which could have an impact on your wellbeing.
 
So make sure that your house or building has its assigned building number displayed on the front of your building by using 4 inch numbers or larger of a contracting color and reflective numbers work well at night.

"Move Over" For Stopped Emergency Vehicles
Drivers must provide a safety zone for stopped law  enforcement, emergency and maintenance vehicles.

To help safeguard law enforcement officers, emergency responders, road maintenance workers, and others who work on the side of highways, Wisconsin has a "Move Over Law."

The law requires drivers to shift lanes or slow down in order to provide a "safety zone" for a squad car, ambulance, fire truck,  tow truck, utility vehicle, or highway maintenance vehicle that is stopped on the side of a road with its warning lights flashing.

Drivers have two options for creating a safety zone:
- If the road has more than one directional lane, like the Interstate, and you can switch lanes safely, you must move over to vacate the lane closest to the law enforcement or other vehicle with its lights flashing.
- If the road has a single directional lane or you can't safely move over, you must reduce your speed.

​Failure of motorists to move over is one of the reasons that motor vehicle crashes kill more law enforcement officers on duty than any other cause.
