Today’s Lime Q&A is essential to understanding how the company works. Q: If I rent one of the bikes do I have to return it to the same spot where I rented it? A: No, definitely not. Lime took a guess at where to stage the bikes to get started but then they will use the GPS systems installed on each bike to track popular pick up and drop off locations and have staff who can move the bikes to more popular areas as needed. You rent a bike. You ride a bike. You park a bike wherever you are when you’re done...within reason. The app will alert you if you’re trying to park a bike in an area with a no parking geofence but you also need to use some courtesy and common sense when parking. Don’t leave bikes laying on the ground, don’t block driveways or walkways, or leave in the road or on private property (like your porch). But you don’t have to leave them lined up next to other Lime bikes in a specific location either. These look pretty on the Homer Village Green but they will look prettier when they’re being used. ...

Great job by the HPD and involved. These glaring safety issues are why we ask Chief Pitman to do these stops, and they will become something we do several times a year in order to cut down on both the unsafe vehicles out on the road, but more importantly, the fact that these unsafe vehicles choose to cut through the Village of Homer to avoid detection, putting our residents at extraordinary risk.

The results really do speak for themselves.In response to continuous complaints of commercial vehicles traveling through the village (mainly on state routes), officers from the Homer Police Department along with New York State Troopers from the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit and officers with the New York State Environmental Police, conducted commercial vehicle inspections in the lower parking lot of the high school off from Copeland Ave on April 18, 2019. Troopers and officers inspected 50 commercial vehicles that yielded a total of 249 commercial motor vehicle violations which included mechanical, load securement, log book, licensing and medical card violations, along with violations for overweight and over length vehicles. 28 of the vehicles were placed out of service for repairs due to significant mechanical equipment component defects or failures. 10 drivers were placed out service for various license and log book violations. Homer Police Officers issued at total of 47 traffic tickets related to equipment, log book, permit or other violations and the New York State Environmental Conservation Police issued 4 for environmental laws (excessive smoke). Although we can’t stress enough that a majority of the operators are professional drivers and that most of the commercial vehicles on the roadways are safe, there are a few that are not and they should not be on the roadways. These safety inspections are done in an effort to prevent injuries and deaths on our roadways.

Thanks for doing a good job for us Homer residents.

The more the better. Please keep setting these up randomly and maybe the companies will decide the shortcut isn't worth it. I drive as slow as possible when one of the trash trucks gets behind me.

Fantastic, now go to Freeville and along Peruville Rd, some of the rattle trap trucks that go through on State Route 38 look like they are falling apart. lle
