As we approach the end of summer, the back-to-school season has begun. That means school zones, buses, and children walking and biking to and from school. Jupiter Police Department Officers will be conducting extra high visibility patrols around our schools throughout the new school year. We want to remind drivers of a few safety precautions as we start the 2017 -2018 school year.
Be alert when driving in a school zone.
Put your cell phone down while driving.
Maintain the school zone speed limit.
Share the road with school buses.
Obey the school bus stop sign as the bus stops for children.
Watch for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Be observant of school crossing guards and traffic direction.
By following these important tips, we can ensure everyone has a safe school year.
As always, I look forward to seeing you around town and don’t forget to visit us on Facebook and on Twitter for important events and information.
