Back To School: Traffic Tips (Monday)

Most children will start the 2010 school year on August 23rd. Are you ready? This week (8/16-21) on Local 2, during the traffic segments, we’ll answer some of the most popular questions for drivers about school zone safety laws. Email me with your questions and we’ll try to get them on-air! jreyna@click2houston.com

Monday’s Questions:

A: According to HISD Police, drivers in ALL lanes and ON BOTH SIDES of the street must stop if the school bus stop sign is out or the red flashing lights are on. Drivers are not required to stop if there is a median separating you(driver) and the school bus.

A: HISD Police will not be giving any warnings for violations in a school zone. They say that this is a NO TOLERANCE policy for the safety of students.  So, stay tuned to my traffic reports this week for a preview of other laws that you should be briefed on before the 2010 school year kicks off.
