It’s Back to School Time
We would like to remind all motorists that there will be an increase in traffic and pedestrians, as students return to school. Please reduce your speed in the area of crosswalks and school zones. Remember slower is safer.
With school buses back on the road, all drivers must stop when approaching a stopped school bus with its upper red lights and stop arm flashing, regardless of the speed limit or number of lanes. Motorists failing to comply may be issued a $490 fine and six demerit points.
Back to school safety is a community effort. Together, we can make this school year a safe one
