Back to School Means More Caution Needed

Many area residents driving to work Monday morning will notice something different. Yellow caution lights will be flashing in school zones and big yellow buses will be on area roads.

Classes start in many area schools this week, as students end their summer vacations. That will require motorists to adjust their habits, too.

If you drive during the hours in which students are going to or from school, please be careful. Just a second’s inattention can put a young life at risk.

And remember that law enforcement officers and deputies will be watching out for the kids. If you aren’t doing the same, don’t expect any breaks from them.
