Most students will be back in class this week don't forget to watch your speed in school zones. School zones are 30km/h unless otherwise posted and take effect from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM, and 3:00PM to 4:30 PM on school days.
Playground zones are always 30 km/hr with times usually marked on signs.
Remember to take extra care to slow down and be alert for students during school hours or when bringing kids to and from school.
If you approach a school bus on the road, remember alternating amber lights mean the school bus is slowing to stop to let students on or off. Alternating red lights mean the bus is stopping. You must stop for red alternating lights when you are approaching the bus or following one unless the bus is on the opposite side of a two-way highway that is physically divided by a median.
As always, remember to use precaution around schools and buses and be on the lookout for kids who are in danger.
