[ARCHIVED] Riverside Police Community Advisory

Three Explorers next to a Back to School Sign

The Riverside Police Department urges motorists to slow down and exercise extra caution when students return to school next week. Drivers are reminded to obey school speed zone signs, refrain from using their cell phones and pay extra attention to students walking to and from school.  Also be aware that congestion near schools increases during these first few weeks of the school year, so allow a bit longer for your daily commute.

Students who walk to and from school are encouraged to always look both ways before crossing the street, obey the school crossing guards and watch for turning vehicles. Be especially alert during inclement weather, and walk with a parent, sibling, friend or a neighbor.

The Riverside Police will conduct extra patrols near the schools and in surrounding neighborhoods during the first few weeks of school. The department will also increase traffic enforcement activities in school speed zones.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety
Even as summer draws to a close, the Village reminds residents that drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are all responsible for following traffic rules.
