A reminder to use caution when driving around school zones
Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014 — For many local youngsters and teenagers, those long, lazy days of summer have finally come to an end, and it’s time to start lugging those heavy backpacks to class as another school year begins.
During the summer vacation, drivers need not worry about students on their way to or from class, but summer vacation has ended. We encourage drivers to slow down and remember the speed limit in school zones is always 25-miles-per-hour when children are present. Drivers should pay particular attention to student pedestrians on foot or on bicycles or skateboards — especially in the morning when students arrive at school and in the afternoon when they head back home.
