WITH SCHOOL OPENING THIS WEEK THE ERWIN POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCING THE SCHOOL ZONE SPEED LIMITS OF 15 MPH. WE ASK THAT DRIVERS STAY AWARE IN AND AROUND THE SCHOOL ZONES AND WATCH FOR CHILDREN AND OTHER PEDESTRIANS WALKING BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL. THERE WILL BE AN INCREASED POLICE PRESENCE IN THESE AREAS AS WE WANT TO HAVE A SAFE START TO THE SCHOOL YEAR. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO REMIND DRIVERS THAT IT IS UNLAWFUL TO PASS A STOPPED SCHOOL BUS AND TO BE CAREFUL DURING THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR.
