It’s the first day of school for students in the Washington Unified School District, and police and school officials are out with a reminder about traffic and pedestiran safety.
“With the start of school, it is important to keep in mind that our roads, walking and bicycling routes will once again be teaming with activity,” said Linda C. Luna, Superintendent for Washington Unified School District. “As our students and families adjust and settle into their new schedules, we are asking all members of our community to please be patient, safe, vigilant and aware of your surroundings as we kick off another exciting school year.”
The West Sacramento Police Department is asking motorists to be extra careful due to an increase in pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Please be patient and allow for extra travel time during the first couple of weeks. Remind your students to obey the rules of the road for pedestrians and bicylists. WSPD will set up enforcement and presence around schools and roadways during commute hours, and all bicycle laws will be strictly enforced. Be safe!
