Thursday, August 10, marks the start of the school year for Dublin public schools. Dublin Police Services would like to remind students, teachers, parents, and residents to use extra caution when traveling around schools during drop-off and pick-up times.
Dublin Police will be providing traffic education and enforcement around all Dublin schools during the first week of school. Please remember that the posted speed limit around schools when children are present is 25 mph, and texting while driving is strictly prohibited. Pedestrians crossing the street - both in crosswalks and at all intersections - have the right of way. Drivers must yield to them at all times.
Students who ride their bicycles to school should wear a helmet and follow all rules of the road, which include stopping fully at all stop signs, pausing before entering non-signaled intersections, and riding at a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour. Bicyclists should never ride on a sidewalk.
