Watch out for students

WELLINGTON CTY. - With the start of the new school year, the Wellington County OPP is reminding everyone to be mindful of the likelihood of increased student traffic. This mean pedestrians, cyclist, busses and student drop off traffic.

“We ask everyone to be mindful of school zones, cross walks and bus pickup routes,” police stated in a press release. “Take extra caution in these areas, slow down, obey traffic control devices and expect the unexpected … and delays. “We also ask families to go over and refresh themselves on street safety. Prepare a designated route to and from school and identify safe street crossing locations.”

Police say parents should know the drop off procedure at their child’s the school before arriving.

“If you have a high school in your area remember you may have less experienced drivers around and increased congestion,” police say. “Accidents will happen, but maybe with a little bit of preparations you can avoid it happening to you or someone you care about.”
