Wednesday, September 5th, is the first day of school for Billerica.
- Watch your speed in school zones! School zones are 20 MPH and TRAFFIC OFFICERS WILL BE OUT IN FORCE.
- Slow down in residential areas. Watch for children crossing the street and congregating near bus stops.
- Do not pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.
- Be alert! The area 10 feet around a school bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Children walking to and from their bus are usually very comfortable with their surroundings and more likely to take risks, ignore hazards, or fail to look both ways when crossing the street.
- Always stop when directed to do so by a designated crossing guard.
