At the beginning of this new school year, the Oak Ridge Police Department wants to remind the public about school zone safety. All school speeding zones will be in effect, and police officers will provide extra patrols in different areas throughout the city.
“During the summer, we often get out of the habit of slowing down around school zones,” Oak Ridge Police Chief Jim Akagi said in a press release. “With school in session, please plan to take a little extra time to get to your destination. Caution, slow driving, and common sense will help reduce traffic accidents and violations.”
