Maybe they’ll fix the road while they’re at it. 🤔

Happy Freezing-Your-Tail-Off Fact Friday! Before running out and starting your car to warm up before heading to work, school or the grocery store, do you know that warming up your vehicle could cost you? It is against the law in Illinois to leave your vehicle running with the keys inside the ignition. (Here is a link for all you fact checkers - cityofwashington.social/Unattended-vehicle-law.)

Peoria (not Washington) has seen a rash of "Warm-up" thefts this month and once again, we want to make sure the City of Washington does our part to not be part of that trend. Here is a link to the news story on CIPROUD - cityofwashington.social/ciproudnewsstory.

So throw a couple of extra blankets in the car and check out the tips below. If you don't have a remote start in your vehicle, check with your local mechanic about having one installed. They are beneficial both in winter and summer months. And they would make a great Valentine's day gift as well.

Oh yeah, Happy Valentine's Day too! Make sure to stop by one of the local florists for your flowers and enjoy lunch and/or dinner at one of the many Washington restaurants tonight. Just don't leave the car running (with your keys in it) while you run inside or before you head back home.

Any resemblance of the attached picture to any members of our Washington, Illinois, Police Department is purely coincidental. Similar questions and responses are a different story. 🤣😁

$300 well spent for a remote start in my old Camry!

Some of us have manual transmisions. No remote start for us!!

Oh man I love stupid laws that punish the victim.

Face palm. Homer Simpson's D'oh! and all the other Uh Oh comments that come to mind when the unintentional damage occurs while trying to do your job. Yep, unfortunately it happened. Last night's heavy wet snow resulted in a few routes having mailboxes plowed over. (Talk about having a bad night at work.) Winter operations have been informed and have already been out accessing the overall damages. The issues that caused it will be addressed. To report damage to your mailbox, call the City at 309-444-3196. Replacements will be installed with in the next few business days (weather permitting). We apologize for the damage and inconvenience and appreciate everyone's patience and understanding. ... See moreSee less

Frustrating but accidents do happen. Washinto City does a very good job on trying to keep the streets cleared.

If everyone would just park in the street on snowy days, this wouldn't be an issue. 🤔🤷‍♂️😁

Keep up the great work guys. Thanks for letting us know.

Well mine is still there. Of course if it was mowed over, the big tree would have to be taken out as well.

If only you were so accommodating to damage from potholes on city maintained roads...

Oops
