Police Department has advice for Cape AirFest travelers

Traffic tips for Cape Girardeau Air Festival

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The skies will be full of interesting aircraft for the 2019 Cape Girardeau Air Festival and the roads will be full of people trying to get there.

The Cape Girardeau Police Department has some tips for any of you headed to the air show at the Cape Regional Airport.

Sgt. Joey Hann said officers are gearing up to accommodate the thousands that will be there, and one thing drivers need to do is be cautious of others on the road.

“There’s going to be a lot of stuff happening in the sky," Hann said. "Don’t watch the skies please watch the roads. We do have accidents every year where someone strikes someone in the rear because they’re watching what’s happening in the sky. Be patient because people are going to be driving slow. Some people may not know this area or the exits they need to use.”
