The Chatham-Kent Police Service would like to wish all the kids going to school this morning a safe, fun and memorable school year.
Just a reminder to all motorists that there will be an increase in traffic and pedestrians, especially young children out on our streets today.
Please reduce your speed in the area of crosswalks and school zones, remember slower is safer.
With school buses back on the road, all drivers must stop when approaching a stopped school bus with its upper red lights and stop arm flashing, regardless of the speed limit or number of lanes. Motorists failing to comply may be issued a $490 fine and six demerit points.
Back to school safety is a community effort.
Let’s make the 2019-2020 school year here in Chatham-Kent a safe one.
