"A lot of traffic, a lot of people dropping kids off to school, a lot of pedestrian traffic will be happening in these areas and we really want people to slow down as the kids get ready to head back to school.

VanLeeuwen says they want drivers to pay attention, keep your eyes on the roads and hands on the wheel and SLOW down. She adds the speed limit doesn't change when the kids aren't at school.
