With the academic year resuming at schools on the traditional calendar, it becomes even more crucial to watch for stopped school buses and for students crossing streets near campuses.
It’s an especially appropriate time for reminders about looking out for pedestrians of all ages at crosswalks throughout Holly Springs.
State law requires that motorists stop for pedestrians at all crosswalks. For their safety, pedestrians should ensure that traffic in both directions sees them and is stopping before beginning to cross.
