CHANDLER, AZ - Children are heading back to school starting Monday and that means drivers will need to use extra caution.
"There is no tolerance," said Officer John Allison with Chandler Police. "The speed limit is 15 miles per hour and that starts once your front wheel passes the sign."
Chandler Unified School District is one of a few districts opening school doors Monday. Others will start next week with most districts starting the week of August 5th.
Allison said officers will be out in full force over the next couple of weeks as commuters get back in the school routine.
"There will be a lot of congestion around some schools," he said. "You have to give yourself more time."
Allison also reminds drivers that they must stop for kids and crossing guards at school crossings. He said all drivers in all lanes must stop once a child or guard's foot steps off the curb.
He also reminds drivers that kids may not always follow the rules and are easily distracted so be watchful.
