Albany- Dougherty County students return to class Tuesday and Albany Police have a warning for drivers who are out of practice dealing with students along street corners.
Drivers should remember to slow down through school zones which resume Tuesday between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Police remind drivers fines are double in a school zone. Officers also encourage parents to talk to their children about correct behavior whether riding the bus or walking to school.
"They don't need to be cutting through the alley's, cutting through people yards, they don't need to talk to strangers, they just need to make sure they go to school they use the cross walks and they want to make sure they obey what the school crossing guard are telling them to do," said Lt. Kenn Singleton, Albany Police.
Police caution students who may go home alone after school never to tell anyone their parents aren't home. They says it's also a good idea to come up with a code word for kids to use, and only allow children to go with someone who knows the code word.
