Yield to pedestrians in school crosswalks
Rockdale police are reminding drivers around Rockdale Elementary School, especially on Bowser Street, to yield to pedestrians at marked crosswalks.
“As part of the parking/traffic pattern this year, parents are walking kids across the street,” Lt. J. D. Newlin said.
“Pedestrians are supposed to have the right of way in those marked crosswalks,” he said. “Some drivers aren’t aware of that.”
“Please stop until the pedestrians cross or until they stop and wave you on,” Newlin said.
