For we will be focusing on everyone's favorite topic... WINTER DRIVING. Living in Michigan we must contend with snow covered roads, unplowed streets and black ice. Although our public service employees work their butts off trying to keep the roads of GR clear, we are one "lake effect weather event" away from treacherous driving.

GRPD is asking anyone with information to call them at 616-456-3400, email them at grpdinfo@grand-rapids.mi.us or call Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
