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.
