    Be Safe—Share the Road!


    West Vincent Township is a desirable place to live. Its beautiful topography and convenience to major highways and commerce create unique transportation needs---driving the family car or a commercial vehicle, moving farm equipment from field to field, walking the dog, riding bikes, enjoying horseback, walking with family and friends, or running alone.

    Drivers
    Plan time for your trip; you may need extra time to wait for a school bus, farm equipment, or slower traffic on the road.


    Watch for deer crossing the road—they are more active at dawn and dusk, and during hunting season.


    On narrow roads, learn the best places to allow on-coming traffic to pass.


    Near horses, slow down and pass carefully. Give horse and rider plenty of room. Don’t sound your horn or take other actions that might startle the horse.


    Stay alert. Keep your eyes and mind on the road. (Minimize the distractions inside your car.)


    Walkers/Runners
    Walk facing traffic.


    Look ahead and plan how and where to safely step off the road.


    Keep your children close to you, and your dog on a leash.


    At night wear reflective clothing and carry a flashlight.


    Bikers
    Obey the vehicular traffic laws; for example, signal before turning and come to a complete stop at Stop signs.  Review the Pennsylvania Bicycle Laws before setting out on your trek. 


    Travel single file when biking with others.

    Parking by Covered Bridges!


    Many of our roads are narrow with private land on either side.  We do not have public parking arrangements on French Creek Road or any other Township roads. Be respectful and ask the property owner for permission to park on their property. Please park vehicles completely off the road so as not to interfere with normal traffic flow. .

    Driving ATVs!


    ATVs can only be driven on private roads with the permission of the property owner. ATVs are not licensed for public roads.
