Back to school reminders

School bus

Starting Tuesday, September 5th, school-zone speed limits are back in effect across the province, including Creston.

Children and teens will once again be walking to and from school, and drivers need to be extra vigilant. Remember, the speed limit in school zones is 30 kilometres an hour, and is in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each school day.

Drivers should also keep an eye out for school buses dropping off passengers, and never pass a school bus with its red-light flashing. All vehicles travelling in the same and opposite direction as the bus are required to stop when the bus displays red warning lights and extends its stop signal arm. Failing to stop for a school bus signal can result in a $368 fine.

Students and parents walking to school should always use designated cross walks, and make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. Remove headphones and ear buds to remain aware of your surroundings on the road.

Creston RCMP wishes all students and their families a safe and successful school year!
