Youngstown PD reminds drivers to slow down in front of schools

Police offers said since school buses will be stopping, drivers should look out and not try to pass them

People are going to see a lot of school buses on the roads Monday morning. It's back to school time for a lot of districts.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – People are going to see a lot of school buses on the roads Monday morning. It’s back to school time for a lot of districts.

That means slowing down in school zones and going the posted speed limit. Drivers will also need to stop when they see a bus put out its stop sign with flashing lights.

Youngstown police are always in school zones when school is in session, and they’ll be there Monday morning.

“There’s going to be small kids crossing the road, all sorts of ages crossing. We hope that people slow down when approaching a school. There will be lights, there will be signs marking, indicating the speeds and the time of operation,” said Youngstown Patrol Officer Mohammad Awad.

Youngstown City Schools, along with Poland, Lowellville, South Range and Sebring all start classes Monday. So does the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center.
