A MESSAGE FROM SHERIFF MOSIER October 24, 2018
On behalf of all of us at the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, I hope you and your family are excited to usher in the fall season in Fauquier County. While fall means back to school for kids in our community, it also brings some extra risks. Fall in Virginia is a wonderful and active time for many Fauquier County residents, from the cooler days and beautiful fall foliage to school activities and festivals, and of course Halloween.
To ensure this fall season is a safe and enjoyable one, I’ve included some practical safety driving tips to help you navigate changing weather and temperatures, and the end of daylight savings time. I hope you’ll find this information valuable.
• Watch out for wet leaves on roadways which can cause slippery conditions.
• Remain extra alert at the end of daylight saving time, since motorists will be dealing with reduced visibility, and keep on the lookout for pedestrians, cyclists and road workers.
• Given weather and temperature changes, make sure tires are properly inflated and have plenty of tread.
• Have a good pair of sunglasses readily available to counter daytime glare, and consider lenses with anti-reflective coating to reduce glare when night driving can’t be avoided.
• Plan ahead for wet conditions: Make sure your windshield wipers are in good working condition. If driving on a road with excess water, slow down and avoid sudden movements with the steering wheel or brake pedal. If you feel like you’re floating, steer straight and gently release the gas pedal until you feel the tires make contact with the road surface. In an especially heavy downpour you may want to pull off the road until it’s safe to continue.
I want you to know public safety is our number one priority at the Sheriff’s Office. That’s why I’m grateful for the continued feedback from our residents on such critical issues as public safety, crime prevention, and other law enforcement-related issues that impact our community.
It is my privilege to serve as your sheriff, and I urge you to contact my office if you have any questions, or if you have any other concerns about crime prevention or public safety efforts in our community.
I deeply appreciate your continued support!
Robert P. Mosier

Working together, law enforcement and our local communities will make a positive impact for the future.
