Classes begin at area schools tomorrow morning, which Jackson Police Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says will mean motorists around town will need to be very cautious – especially around school zones. Nethercott says there where be an increased presence in those areas by law enforcement because the department wants be keep the students safe and remind everyone that the speed limit is 20 miles an hour around the schools now that classes are back in session.  However, Nethercott quickly points out that the immediate vicinity of schools should not be the only area motorists need to be watchful.  Nethercott says there will be a big increase in the number of students walking to school, kids on bikes, and young people crossing the streets.  He says especially with construction zones leading to some alternate traffic patterns, everyone needs to be particularly careful where there is the added confusion. Additionally, excited children will be waiting at school bus stops – perhaps not observing their best safety behaviors there.  Drivers need to watch for students along the roadsides and always come to a complete stop when school busses are displaying their flashing red lights.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
