Police Launch Campaign for "Back to School"
Expect a bit more traffic on the roads this Tuesday morning.
The kids head back to school which is sure to cause a bit more congestion on area roads and highways than we've been used to over the past two months. That especially holds true when you factor in parents who carpool, buses moving students to class and of course, stopping for more pedestrians in the form of students walking to school.
Canadian Automobile Association advises that drivers will have to pay closer attention, especially for kids that might suddenly dart out from behind parked cars. They can be excited to start the school year and not necessarily be paying much attention to oncoming traffic.
Police in 54 Division will be impressing the importance of all those tips Tuesday morning at Presteign Heights Elementary School at 2570 St. Clair Avenue East. TPS Parking Enforcement Unit will join them in kicking off the Back to School Safety Campaign. The campaign runs until Friday, Sept. 14, and it will focus on drivers "who put children at risk due to their poor driving habits."
