After the holidays children return to school and classes resume. The Los Angeles Police Department wants to bring awareness to motorists of the traffic laws in effect around schools in an effort to save children’s lives.
Regrettably each year in the City of Los Angeles, many children are either injured or killed while being dropped off or picked up from school.
Safety tips around schools will be provided at the press conference.
