On the Security Scene
On Thursday, January 13, Security responded to a minor vehicle accident on Wiley Bottom Road. A resident called to report that she had backed into a utility trailer located near her driveway. Upon arrival, officers noted that the trailer was not properly marked with two safety cones. As a result, the vendor was issued a citation. Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) was not notified at the driver’s request, and no injuries were reported.
Hit and Run
Security responded to the Oakridge Fitness Center on Monday, January 17 for a report of a hit and run accident. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with a resident who stated that she found a note on her vehicle upon leaving the Fitness Center. The note stated that the vehicle parked next to her had hit her car while pulling into the parking spot. A search of the license plate resulted in negative findings. The incident was reported to The Club’s Loss Prevention staff and CCPD for further investigation.
On Wednesday, January 19, a resident reported she was forced off the community path while walking her dogs by a golf cart driver who had a child in his lap and appeared to be on his phone. Due to the speed of the cart, the registration number on the cart’s front and sides was not obtained. As a reminder, Section G of TLA’s Rules and Regulations prohibit all three of these offenses; no one may sit in the driver’s lap, golf carts must yield to pedestrians, and the “hands free” rule applies to golf carts. In accordance with the Board-approved 2022 fine schedule, these violations could have resulted in a $297 fine. The Board also reserves the right to suspend membership privileges for up to 30 days.
