Slow Down When You See The Kids

KIT NEWS

It’s back-to-school time and if you haven’t noticed already it’s time to slow down in those school zones and around schools in general, Yakima Police warn.

Capt. Greg Copeland urges motorists to remember that kids might not be looking for cars — so it falls to grownups.

“A lot of the kids are nervous about school starting and they may not be paying close attention to where they’re walking, so I think it’s important for all of us to be paying more attention,” Copeland says.

And if you are caught speeding in a school zone, tickets can range from $150 to $200 or more depending on your speed. But Copeland says it’s not about writing tickets. He says it’s about educating drivers to realize that kids can be killed if drivers aren’t paying attention around schools and in school zones.
