With school on our doorstep, it is time to begin paying close attention to the school zones and reduced speed of the zones around local schools.
Many local elementary schools are located on Main Streets of the various communities, so please be cautious of the crosswalks and crossing guards helping youth get to and from school. Please pay attention to the stoplights and carefully obey them, especially when making a left or right hand turn on to Main Streets.
Let’s all protect our precious children going to and from school by slowing down and being alert.
