The new school year starts next week, and the Grand Junction Police Department wants to remind drivers to slow down in school zone areas.
Next Monday the school zone lights will be turned back on after being dormant all summer. The police department will have some extra patrol in school zone areas. Officers are also advising parents to remind children about traffic safety, such as looking both ways before crossing the street, and to walk with a friend.
