Eastvale – Parents have made several complaints to our local sheriff’s department and City regarding unsafe driving in school zones, specifically on Scholar Way. In response to these complaints, the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station conducted traffic enforcement around the schools in the City of Eastvale. On the week of March 20th, deputies also educated the public in traffic laws and overall safety.
On April 13, the Eastvale Traffic Team and School Resource Deputies from Eleanor Roosevelt High School partnered up to remind motorists to use wise judgment when operating a motor vehicle in school zones.
“We understand the frustration of picking up and dropping off your kids,” stated a Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Department news release. “However, the attempts to hurry up the process of dropping off or picking up your kids should not overshadow the need to keep safety and courtesy in mind. The safety of everyone in the school zones is of upmost importance for all those in the area. With your help, we can make the process a safe one and everyone can make it home safely.”
The Sheriff’s Department wanted to remind residents to obey all traffic laws at all times and remember the following:
-Do not speed
-Do not block intersections
-Do not park on the red curbs
-Make a complete stop at all stop signs
-Do not allow your child to get out of your vehicle while in the middle of the street.
“Together, we can keep all children safe.”
