Young children are  naturally drawn to water.  They're curious about the sound of flowing water and how light shimmers on its surface.  They want to look at it more closely and touch it with their hands.  Water can be deadly, and drowning can happen quickly and without any warning of splashing or screaming.

Drowning is one of the leading causes of childhood injury-related deaths nationwide.  Pool barriers are essential to protect local children from tragedy.  If you own a pool, check out the pool ordinance and obtain additional information at




Small children and infants are more sensitive to heat, and this sensitivity causes their body temperature to increase three to five times faster than adults.  This, combined with temperature increases that occur inside a car when the temperature outside is as low as 70 degrees, can cause dangerous conditions for children in minutes.

Studies show that of the child deaths in cars, more than a third of these were the result of a child accidentally left in a closed, parked vehicle by parents or caregivers.  Another third were trapped while playing unattended in a vehicle.  Sadly, one in five children who died was intentionally left in the vehicle by an adult who ran a quick errand.

If you spot an unattended child left in a vehicle somewhere, please call 911 immediately.





The Pineville town-wide speed limit is 35 mph, unless otherwise noted.  The speed limit is 20 mph on Main Street.  The Pineville Police Department will be strictly enforcing these limits.  Be sure to observe the posted limits if you do not wish to receive a ticket.
