FRENCH VALLEY - California Highway Patrol officers on Wednesday, Sept. 11, said they will be cracking down on motorists in French Valley who speed through school zones, ignore people waiting at crosswalks and commit other traffic violations that could lead to injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists.

CHP Officer Mike Lassig said the safety enforcement campaign will be focused around Alamos and Mails elementary schools, as well as Bella Vista and McElhinny middle schools.

"The CHP would like to remind everyone to drive safely through school zones,'' Lassig said. "Drivers must watch their speed and refrain from being distracted with cell phones and other dangerous driving behaviors.''

Patrol officers will be monitoring traffic at each location between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., according to Lassig.

Motorists will be the first priority, but officers will also issue citations to jay-walkers who don't use marked cross-walks, Lassig said.

"The CHP is committed to doing our part to keep the community safe,'' Lassig said. "We urge every member of the community to be safe and follow the rules of the road.''
