Longview officials urge safe driving

Monday, August 23, 2010 - 12:10pm

The Longview Police Department wants to remind Longview area motorists that with the beginning of school, there are many things to be aware of:

• School zones will be closely monitored by patrol and traffic units and not all school zones have signs with flashing lights.

• Watch for children at crosswalks and other areas near schools where they may be attempting to cross the street.

• When school buses are stopped for loading or unloading and their red flashing lights are activated, it is illegal to pass a bus.

• It is unlawful to talk on a cellular telephone while in a school zone unless a hands free device is used.

The safety of our children is a priority for the Longview Police Department. Please do your part to help us to keep our children safe by keeping them in mind as you drive today.
