The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station reminds residents that schools are back in session this week.
Below are a few safety recommendations for this time of year. With safety of children a primary concern, patrol and motor deputies will be out and about in the Santa Clarita Valley to ensure motorists are being safe and are in compliance with the law.
– Be mindful of school zones
– Always stop for a crossing guard holding up a stop sign, and follow directions
– Near schools, watch out for bicyclists and pedestrians
– If a school bus is stopped and flashing red lights, you must stop from either direction until the lights stop flashing and children have safely crossed the road
– Avoid any distracted driving (no cell phones, eating, putting on make-up, etc.)
– Be alert; children often are unpredictable, and they tend to ignore hazards and take risks
– Allow extra time for morning drop-off; plan to arrive early, not a minute before the bell rings
– If the school has a “Valet Drop-Off Program,” please take advantage and use it
– Have patience, and extend courtesy to other motorists, pedestrians
– Use designated crosswalks when walking to school; no cutting in between cars to save time
– Do not stop or park in posted zones where it is prohibited
– Don’t park in crosswalks/intersections
– Don’t illegally double park; it blocks visibility for other children and vehicles
– Don’t park/stop in fire lanes
– Don’t block residential (private) driveways
– Don’t stop or park in or blocking handicap spaces
– If you park in a handicap space without a placard, the fine is $393
We are looking forward to another great school year, and that starts with motorists being mindful of school zones and school buses carrying our children. Our deputies will be paying close attention to school zones and the safe operation of vehicles throughout the Santa Clarita Valley. Remember to slow down and stay alert.
