THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Law enforcers want to send a message to kids who walk to and from school.

The Thomasville Police Department has received complaints from motorists and businesses about pedestrian traffic.

Police say children are walking into oncoming traffic, not crossing at crosswalks,and loitering in front of businesses.

Police say they're willing to speak directly to the kids. "We'll come out if we have organizations in the community such as churches, civic organizations, and we'll come out and speak to youth groups anywhere, boys and girls clubs, wherever and talk to them about pedestrian safety and how to cross the street and how to conduct themselves as they are walking home from school," said Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton.

Police say it's up to the parents to remind their children about traffic laws and traffic safety.
