School starts Sept 9

With the start of the school year approaching, the City of Lake Forest Park would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists that school zones and neighborhoods which may have been quiet for the summer will soon be busy with students walking and biking to school. Please make sure you slow down and stay alert.

Distracted driving is always dangerous, but it is especially so in and around school zones. Children are the least predictable pedestrians and the most difficult to see. Take extra care to look out for children not only in school zones, but also in residential areas, playgrounds and parks.

The safety of our pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers is of paramount importance to the City of Lake Forest Park, and citizens are reminded that school zone cameras resume enforcement of the 20-mph school zone speed limit beginning September 9, 2015.

Please drive safely and exercise caution in school zones and neighborhood areas where children and teenagers might be walking or bicycling.
