SPVM says be vigilant in school zones
Wednesday August 28th marked the first day of school for many kids across the province and the SPVM greeted them with their annual road safety campaign. They'll be out in full force until September 22nd reminding drivers to be vigilant about road rules in school zones.
"In an ideal world we won't be giving any tickets because everyone will be following the rules in school zones," said André Durocher spokesman for the SPVM. "We're reminding drivers to stop for school buses and to respect the speed limit in school zones.
They're also asking parents in particular to slow down as they drop their kids off.
As part of the road safety campaign, the SPVM will also be talking to kids about staying safe when walking to school and taking the bus.
