Back To School

The Scottsboro Police Department would like to remind everyone to drive extra careful during morning and afternoon school traffic.  With school back in session this Friday August 5, 2016.  Most children are taken and picked up at school by private vehicle the first few days, so we should experience more traffic on the roadways during these times.

Please be aware of the lower speed limit in school zone areas.  We will have increased police patrols at and around all school properties.

Also, be aware of increased bus traffic and remember not to pass buses when they are stopped to load or unload students.

Some recommendations to make your first few days of school a pleasant one are;

Start your travel to or from school earlier

Take your time

Abide by all traffic signage

Watch out for buses                                                     IMG_1327

We hope everyone has a safe and great school session this year.
