With the start of the new school year, the
Polk County Sheriff's Office would like to remind students and motorist to
keep safety a #1 priority as students walk or ride bicycles to and from
school. Students are asked to observe the following safety tips:
Motorists are asked to make school zones "safe zones" by observing all school zone speed limits and obeying school crossing guards. Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit members will be monitoring and enforcing the speed limit in all school zones. Remember, speeding fines/penalties in a school zone are doubled.
For more information on bicycle safety or school crossing safety, please contact the Polk County Sheriff's Office Community Services Section at 863-534-0980.
