Lakewood Police Chief Greg Meyer is reminding parents that school is now in session, and drivers should pay extra attention to children walking and riding bicycles.
“Pay attention to the road and drive safely – especially around school zones,” Chief Meyer told TLS.
“We would like to remind motorists that the speed limit in all school zones is lower.”
Police will have extra patrols in school zones for the first few weeks of school.
The Chief is also reminding parents to pay extra attention to the change in pickup and drop-off schedules, which can sometimes result in a child being left in a vehicle.
