[ARCHIVED] Back to school this week

 August is back-to-school safety month and the Old Westbury Police Department  would like to provide the residents of Old Westbury with tips about staying safe around schools and beyond.  

- Slow down and be especially alert in neighborhoods and school zones.
- Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
- Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
- Watch for children on and near the road in the morning and after school hours.
- Reduce any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
- Put down your phone and don’t talk or text while driving.
- Obey school zone speed limits and follow your school's drop-off procedure.”
