Citrus Heights police increase traffic patrols in school zones

The Citrus Heights Police Department is ushering in the new year with stepped-up traffic enforcement in school zones.

With students back in school following the holiday break, police remind motorists to slow down near schools.

The city's Police and General Services departments have been working to improve traffic safety in school zones, installing high-visibility signs to alert motorists, according to a Police Department news release. Drivers are reminded not to exceed 25 mph in school zones and to watch out for children, whose actions can be unexpected.

Officers will be conducting extra patrols in all school areas, enforcing school zone speed limits and looking for distracted driving, as well as right-of-way and pedestrian violations. Parents are reminded to make sure their children wear helmets when riding bicycles or scooters, or skating to school.
