HINESVILLE, Ga. (WTOC) – A return to school also means a return to traffic. Liberty County Schools are back in session starting Tuesday.
Hinesville Police Department officials say with students heading back to school, it often means more cars on the road, which is why being a safe driver is so important.
Assistant Principal Tracey Howard says it’s important to look for school zones, indicated by flashing lights. The Hinesville Police Department has eight officers to help direct traffic in school zones. Howard also says to remember to stop on school buses when the stop sign is off, even if you’re in a lane going the opposite direction. And above all, remember to slow down.
“People know it’s in a school zone. A lot of times what we’re going to see are traffic accidents that happen further down the road where people are trying to restore their speed and gain their position in traffic,” Howard said.
Another thing to remember is not to follow too closely the person or bus in front of you.
Howard also says to always be on the lookout for students crossing the street, especially outside of authorized crosswalks.
