In person school has started across Juneau for several students. With it comes reduced speeds near schools during the morning and afternoon. Drivers should be aware of flashing school zone signs when travelling near schools and reduce speeds accordingly. Watch out for additional pedestrians and bicyclist that may be on the roadway and yield the right of way.
Watch out for school buses. Drivers should never pass school busses with red lights activated. You run a high risk of striking a child. The safest behavior is to stop at least 50 feet back from the bus and give everyone plenty of room.
