With the start of a new school year underway, the City of Peoria is encouraging students, families, and drivers to practice back-to-school safety. If your child is walking to school, plan the route ahead and choose the safest path with the least street crossings. Teach children the rules of the road, to obey all traffic signs, and follow the directions of school crossing guards. Teach children not to talk to strangers or accept rides from anyone other than approved friends and family. While driving, remember to slow down in school zones, always yield to children in crosswalks, and do not drive distracted. To ensure the safety of all students, the Peoria Police Department will be strictly enforcing traffic safety and parking in and around school zones.
