Police urge care in Warwick school zones

WHEN school returns on Monday hundreds of Warwick children will swap their holiday T-shirts, shorts and thongs for school uniforms and sensible shoes.

This means school zones will come back into effect and Warwick police acting officer-in-charge Craig Berry said police were urging parents and care givers to be aware of their surroundings in and around schools.

"Although crossings are situated outside schools, kids occasionally cross the road without paying proper attention,” he said.

"That's why it's important for drivers to be vigilant and obey signed speed limits. Marked and unmarked police units will be patrolling the school zones looking to enforce any traffic breaches, so please take care.”
