Many schools in our community will be beginning a new school year soon. With start of a new school year comes new challenge for not only for students, staff, and parents but also for drivers in our community.
Remember use caution and patient during this time by watching for school buses that make frequent stops, kids walking to and from school, new drivers driving to school for the first time, parents transporting kids to and from school, and crossing guards.
Safety is a priority for everyone this time of year. Each year with the start of school everyone does their best to adjust morning and afternoon traffic due to school.
Driving a little slower on the county roads to watch for buses, slowing down in school zones and pausing at stop signs to watch for walkers, and being patient around school where crossing guards are working will keep everyone safe and allow for a successful start to a new school year for everyone.
