Speed signs remind drivers to slow down

In Community Involvementby Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Of course this video was meant to be silly.

However, there is an issue with people speeding through neighborhoods, especially those that connect with the Prince William Parkway, Route 234, Dale Boulevard and Hoadly Road.

The speed warning sign, like the one here on Hillendale Road, may not stop people from speeding. But it is a good reminder if you’re coming into a neighborhood from one of those major roads to lower your speed.

Ever since the signs were put up, you can tell that traffic is a bit more controlled. I’ve been coming down this road for 20 years, and once those signs went up, it was a nice reminder for me to keep my speed down — as it is for many other drivers.

Fortunately, Supervisor Victor Angry has taken this issue to heart, and he has talked with us about his plan to bring traffic calming devices to the neighborhoods of the Neabsco District. He believes the devices will help improve safety for members of the community, especially the kids.

In Community Involvementby Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire is making health care more affordable for its employees.

On December 1, the Woodbridge-based automotive repair shop started paying 100 percent of the basic health care plan.

“Small businesses are finding it more difficult to attract and retain qualified employees. The rising cost of health care is contributing to the issue,” Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire Owner Scott Whitling said. “We thought, ‘What could we do to be more marketable in our industry and do something that would benefit the employees?’”

This is enabling an employee to purchase health insurance for his two children.

Employees of Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire also received more Paid Time Off (PTO) days that can be used if they’re sick or they need to care for family members.
