Police Urge Drivers to Be Cautious as Students Head Back to School

With Silver Lake students back in school, the LAPD reminds drivers to be extra cautious when travelling neighborhood streets – and for residents to keep a look out for traffic violators. Police also recommend that students waiting for a school bus stand five giant steps from the road and wait until the driver gives an OK to board. In addition, students should always walk on the sidewalk and when crossing the street, look left-right-left for cars. Bicyclists should always wear a buckled helmet.
