With school holidays wrapping up, Maroochydore Police will be targeting their patrols around schools to ensure local students and parents have a safe return school.
We are reminding motorists to slow down on our roads, especially around education facilities as school zones will be enforced from Tuesday, January 28.
Operations Leader at Maroochydore Police Station, Acting Senior Sergeant Aaron Rose said it was vital parents practised road safety when dropping off and picking up children.
“To ensure children’s safety around schools at high peak time, I encourage parents to abide by time limits at allocated parking spots and pick up zones,” Acting Senior Sergeant Rose said.
“Don’t stop on yellow lines, in bus zones or double park to pick up children.
“Take this opportunity to speak to your children about road safety as they prepare to start the new school year, especially if they are starting school for the first time.”
