With the new school year starting, please be aware of more traffic around schools during the mornings and afternoons when schools start and dismiss. Also, be careful about speed limits in school zones and watch for students being picked up by parents and school buses. Every school year, avoidable accidents occur that could have been prevented by using caution and slowing down driving in school zones.
Our children heading back to school is a yearly occurrence every fall. Be safe, be cautious in school zones, and discuss safety concerns with your children prior to that first day of school.
