Officials are reminding drivers in Illinois to take it slow in school zones. There will be plenty of kids walking near the roads as they head to and from school. Speed zones are reduced in many school areas and drivers should never go around a stopped bus that has its stop sign extended. Remember, it’s illegal to use your cell phone when you’re behind the wheel so drivers should not be texting, talking, or checking Facebook or email. Officials say the main idea is to focus and be aware of your surroundings. That will help avoid accidents that could have potentially tragic results.
