School Zones are a place to ensure the safety of children in and around schools. While class is in session, drivers are responsible for maintaining safety and awareness on the streets surrounding schools.
Keeping children safe at school is one of the highest concerns we have as parents, teachers, administrators, and as a community. No one wants to discover a flaw in design or planning that puts children at risk only after an accident has occurred. Double check your school’s design and planning to prevent pedestrian accidents around your school.
Safe Routes to School Program (SRTS) is a federal grant made available to elementary and middle schools for the purpose of providing roadway and school zone safety measures that do include traffic calming devices such as driver feedback signs. Select the Safe Routes link for more information.
