As another school year starts, it is more important than ever to obey all traffic regulations because so many youngsters will be on our streets as they travel to and from school. All school zones are clearly marked. Drivers are reminded to drive not only within the speed lim¬ it, but also with care and caution. Teenage drivers will also be on the roads driving to school.
