Public schools are back in session Monday, 08-24-09. Drive safely, watch for students and crossing guards.

Sheriff Grady Judd reminds Polk County residents that public schools are back in session Monday, August 24, 2009. The amount of traffic on our roadways will dramatically increase during early morning and after-school hours.

“Please be vigilant this school year when driving near school buses and through school crossings - watch for the ever-present school crossing guards and note the speed limits in school zones,” reminds Sheriff Judd. “Please remember that fines are doubled in school zones and that all law enforcement members take the safety of our children very seriously. As a responsible motorist, so should you.”
