(WFXG) - Deputies will be out at different school zones running laser, radar, and actively slowing people down, plus school crossing guards will be out at schools as well. Richmond County suggests you drive ten miles under the speed limit in those zones. Their overall message is for people to drive safe and remember that it is their job to pay attention in order to prevent accidents.
"If you're not paying attention, we're going to help you pay attention. You know I hate to say that and we don't like to do that but our job is to keep you safe, your family safe, and your children safe. If you don't want to take it upon yourself to help us do that, we are just going to give you a friendly reminder," explains Sgt. Mark Chestang with the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.
