As summer draws to a close, the
Geneva Police Department wants motorists to be mindful of children walking to
school starting Wednesday, Aug. 23.
Police officers will have a visible presence in school zones and neighborhoods surrounding school buildings this week to watch for violations that contribute to accidents. These violations include texting while driving, talking on a cell phone while driving, speeding and failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
People can read about more back-to-school safety tips from Police Chief Eric Passerelli in the “Safety First” blog on the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us.
The Geneva Police Department appreciates the community’s support to assure the 2017-18 school year gets off to a safe start for everyone.
