FRAMINGHAM -It has come to the attention of the Framingham Police that some motorists are not using care and caution when dropping off and picking up children at several of the Framingham Public Schools, according to a joint memo from the schools and Framingham Police.
The school district issued these reminders this afternoon, January 3.
- We would like to urge motorists to drive slowly and safely when dropping off and picking up students at the schools.
- Motorists should be mindful that the speed limit through school zones is 20 miles per hour.
- Motorists should obey the Crossing Guards in these school zones and stop when they are told to do so.
As a result of several complaints, the Framingham Police will be deploying Traffic Enforcement Officers in school zones over the next several weeks to conduct enforcement, according to a memo issued to parents by the district’s new director of safety Scott Penrod.
The memo was also from Framingham Police Lt. Harry Wareham and Officer Keith Strange.
