Heads Up Drivers School Zones Are Open
Thousands of kids are going back to school in the Yakima Valley this week. That means school zones are open and the potential for a tragic accident is on the increase. Yakima Police Officer Scott Grant says officers watch the zones closely. 4 recommendations from Triple AAA to make your back to school commute safer this week. Slow down, eliminate distractions, make a complete stop at a stop sign and plan some extra time into your commute especially if you drive near schools or in school zones. Remember Yakima Police say speeding tickets double in a school zone so the average cost is about $189 dollars.
