Drivers, cyclists, pedestrians: Follow the rules of the road

e-Connections Post

School is back in session, and with it the return of heavy traffic around SCUSD campuses during drop-off and pick-up times. This congestion can lead to accidents if drivers, cyclists and pedestrians ignore traffic laws.

The speed limit around schools is 25 miles per hour. Double-parking, parking along red curbs, parking in driveways and parking in crosswalks is illegal and can result in a ticket.

Jaywalking is also illegal — and dangerous. Students should be reminded to use crosswalks and obey traffic signals. Cyclists should use designated bike lanes and avoid weaving in and out of traffic. Students should wear properly fitted bicycle helmets to avoid injury.
