Alexandria Police Department Enhances Safe Return to School

The Alexandria Police Department, in its annual effort to foster the start of a safe school year, will be increasing enforcement as students return to school on Tuesday, September 6.  Additional police and parking enforcement officers will be assigned to enforce all traffic laws, including speeding, passing school buses, illegal parking and failing to yield to pedestrians.

Enforcement will be increased in and around school zones and along bus routes.  The Police Department would like to remind drivers that the speed limit in school zones is posted at 15 or 25 mph.  Drivers are also reminded that it is illegal to pass a stopped school bus with its lights flashing. This action constitutes Reckless Driving and is subject to DMV fines. All violators of these laws will be ticketed as the Police Department strives to promote the safety and welfare of both children and adults.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use caution and maintain a safe driving environment.
