Please keep these safety tips in mind especially in school zones:
- Be on the lookout for school zone signals and ALWAYS obey the speed limits.
- When entering a school zone, be sure to slow down and obey all traffic laws.
- Always stop for school busses that are loading or unloading children. It is ILLEGAL to pass a school bus with its STOP sign out and/or its red lights flashing.
- Watch out for school crossing guards and obey their signals.
- Be aware of and watch out for children near schools, bus stops, sidewalks, in the streets, in school parking lots, etc.
- Avoid using a cell phone, unless it is completely hands-free, which means no texting!
Putnam County has no children to spare. Lets keep everyone safe.
