A reminder to everyone that school is starting again. Rochester School District began classes this week and the districts in the rest of the county begin after Labor Day. Keep a close eye out for kids walking and riding bikes to school.
Pay particular attention in school zones, and remember that traffic fines double in posted school zones. Many school zones are marked by signs that limit speed to 20 mph “when flashing” while others limit that same speed “when children are present”. Make sure you abide by these limits and help ensure that our children remain safe.
Crossing guards are also present at many school zones and it is imperative, and required by law, that motorists follow the directions of these crossing guards.
The bottom line, be aware and safe as you drive throughout the county and particularly in and around schools and school zones.
