Yard-salers should be aware of safety hazards as they hunt bargains. Parking too close to the road or driving erratically because of distraction can both be major causes of accidents on yard sale days.
Sellers should be sure to get permission from property owners before setting up. They are also advised that if they desire to sell food, they will need a permit; the Health Department is sending four employees to visit stands and issue permits in the early morning. Contact the Macon County Chamber of Commerce for more information.
