The opening of schools in Nevada County is upon us and the CHP and Grass Valley Police are urging caution for drivers. CHP Officer Cindy Morgan says school opens on Wednesday. She says drivers need to take extra precaution around all the area schools.
“There will be increased traffic because a lot of parents will be taking their children to school for the first few days to make sure that they get acclimated. So please expect slower times, please expect crowded streets and also be very aware that there will be lots of pedestrian traffic in and around school zones.”
The Grass Valley Police are urging children to cross the street with a adult, cross the street using cross walks and at traffic signals, not to run into the street always make sure the bus driver can see them. A reminder to drivers the speed limit is twenty-five miles an hour in a school zone.
