As we embrace the beginning of school which is set for August 22nd our residents are reminded to prepare for a significant increase in vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Safety in and around our schools is a high priority.
Drivers are reminded to be conscious of designated crosswalks and pedestrians and cyclists are reminded to cross at designated crosswalks. If your child will be bicycling to school for the first time, familiarize them with a route to school you feel is safest prior to the start of school. Bicyclists should always wear an approve bicycle helmet and proper footwear (no sandals, flip-flops etc…).
Police officers from the Pct. 4 Constable’s Office and other law enforcement agencies will be out in force during school zone times. Drivers are reminded to be mindful of the 20 mph speed limits. Proper enforcement action will be taken for speed limit violations, use of cell phones in the school zones and seat belt compliance.
Together let’s make this a safe and prosperous school year for our community.
Constable Trever J. Nehls
