DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Police are cautioning drivers to build in extra drive-time when classes start back in Albany Tuesday.
Police said the crosswalks will be busy.
Drivers will need to slow down in school zones and should keep an eye out for younger children who might be unfamiliar with the cross-walk. Some may try to dart ahead of guardians.
"Be mindful. Take an extra second. Try not to speed down these streets you know are near schools," said DCSS School Spokesperson J.D. Sumner. "Even in neighborhoods, its 35 miles per hour, you can save a life by going 30, you know what I mean? It's just not worth it, build in extra time."
There is still a memorial for Antonio Shedd, Junior. The city added the signage.
There were no changes to the crosswalks around the county.
The city manages the crosswalks until they cross into school property.
