Students are headed back to school in Georgina. This busy time calls for added caution on the roads. Motorists should obey posted speed limits, be alert and slow down for pedestrians and cyclists. Speeding or passing school buses may result in costly fines, and higher penalties in community safety zones. Pedestrians and cyclists should take extra care to be visible to motorists. Use bicycle lights and wear bright-coloured clothing when walking, jogging or playing at night. Always be safe and look all ways before crossing. Best wishes for a safe return to school.
