We are continuing our dedication to the safety for schoolchildren by enforcing a yearlong proactive enforcement detail in school zones by issuing educational public service announcements and disseminating social media informational posts.
Officers will be highly visible in school zones and motorists will be issued warnings or citations when speeding in a designated school zone. This proactive citywide enforcement will help ensure that motorist’s slowdown to the posted reduced speed limits in school zones, put down distracting devices and be aware that students are walking and biking to school, as well as entering and exiting school buses.
Additionally, it is crucial that every single driver, whether traveling toward or traveling behind a school bus must stop when the bus has its "Stop" sign extended and its red lights flashing. Officers will be vigilant in combating the occurrence of non-compliant drivers who illegally pass a school bus by issuing citations to offenders.
Keeping our children and students safe is a community responsibility. The Titusville Police Department will continue this multifaceted enforcement detail throughout the remainder of the 2020 to 2021 school year. DRIVE SAFE TITUSVILLE!
