BACK TO SCHOOL ROAD SAFETY

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

With only a few days left un­til school’s back in ses­sion, the ex­cite­ment is mount­ing (more so from par­ents) and prepa­ra­tions are in full swing. Don’t for­get to think about your first school run. Give your­self plenty of time to find a le­gal car park. Drive past your school this week, check out the park­ing and sig­nage and work out where you can and can­not park. From Mon­day, Jan­uary 23 all mo­torists need to ad­just their speed for the 40km/h school zones. For the ma­jor­ity of schools they run from 7am - 9am and 2:30pm3:30pm. Par­ents should en­cour­age chil­dren to use school cross­ings and mo­torists are urged to take ex­tra care around these zones. Po­lice will be per­form­ing high vis­i­bil­ity pa­trols for back to school, so don’t meet us by ac­ci­dent.
