School Zone Enforcement

Aug 7, 2014

The Morton Police Department would like to remind motorists that Morton School District (709) resumes session on 8/13/14.  School speed zones and no parking zones will be enforced to ensure the safety of the students.

AAA reminds motorists to do the following:  Slow down in or near school or residential areas, and be sure to come to a complete stop at all intersections.  Look for crossing guards, bicycles and playgrounds which indicate children could be in the area.  Scan between parked cars and other objects for signs that children could dart into the road.  Always stop for school buses that are loading and unloading students.  Leave early so you are not rushed as you travel to work or school.  Drive with your headlights on - even during the day - so children and other drivers see you.
